    How can I copyright my work here on hubpages?

      Your work anywhere is automatically copyrighted.   If you want to add a "Copyright September 2010 by whoever", go ahead, but you do not need to.

    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!
    As PCUnix rightly pointed out -- your work is AUTOMATICALLY protected by copyright.
    It is a good idea, however, to add the "C in a circle" sign,year and your name and post that at the end of your hubs. Just another not-so-subtle reminder to would-be content thieves!
