It is a Copyright not a copy write so the term is copyrighted - sounds strange but is correct. As to the legal particulars it has always been my understanding that an artist or writer need only claim copyrights to their work and it is then copyrighted. It is little more than making a claim that 'this is owned" and therefore cannot legally be reproduced without my permission. I am not an attorney but that is the extent of my understanding
actually, for some years now, you don't even have to make the claim - intellectual property automatically has copyright protection. when you capture an image, it's copyrighted.
you can also register your work in DC if you're in the us, but that just sets you up to be able to seek punitive damages if you find someone copying your work.
the sad fact is that there's not really too much small operations can do if they find infringement - the legal costs will kill you.
