    How do you copyright your hubs

    There are two ways:
    1) Create a text capsule -
            Type - Author: (your name linked to your profile) a dash (copyright symbol which you will find in the 'Special Character'{horseshoe}) and finally the current year. The closest that I can come here is "Author: (your name{link}) - @2013".

    2) The other way is when you are in edit, pan the mouse to the right and down to 'Display Options'. Click on that and you will see an empty box next to the word copyright. Click on the down arrow and if you click on your name the Hub is copyrighted. You can leave edit and check the bottom of your Hub.

    I hope that I explained these all right.

      Thank you for the directions on how to do this on my hubs. I also checked the legal aspects. I found out that as soon as my work is saved in some form it is copyrighted, so basically the copyright symbol shows that people should  ask before using.

    I can raise my hand on this one. 
    I am taking the basic HTML.
    In our text, Basics of Web Design: HTML5 & CSS3  by  Terry Ann Felke-Morris it says what you write is automatically copyrighted. 

    The origin of this is the World Wide Web Consortium if you care to check this out.

      Thank you I looked that up, what I found is that copyright begins the moment you work is saved, even just on your computer. The copyright notice just informs other people.

    You have a copyright on your hub as soon as you have written it.  You can add words to tell readers that you have the copyright by using the symbol, the date, and your name.  Hubpages has provided this feature for you, although some people are complaining because they also want to add the words "all rights reserved."
