PCUnix is right, you can also see at the footer where it says "Copyright © 2010 Hubpages Inc. and respective owners." which is just a formal notice that work here is copyrighted.
It's a common misconception that to copyright one's creative work requires some kind of formal submission to government entities. Not so!

Fellow hubbers, could you suggest how I would copyright my work on Hubpages?I sometimes wonder whether my work should be copyrighted so that no one can just take it off the internet and publish it under their own name. Is there any hub I could refer to for this information?
