    As I understand Hubpages states that it isn't necessary.

    If you add a copyright symbol, it shows that you are serious about protecting your copyright.  However, it's true that you don't need to.  if you created the written work, the copyright is inherent.  It is yours, and anyone who stole that work, or reused it as a major part or a whole without your express permission, would have a case to answer to you.  Even if they attribute the material to you, they still need your permission to reproduce it.  I hope that helps.

    If you look at the bottom of every page you will see a copyright mark, that covers everything on the site including our articles.

    I believe that if some unknown person is willing to use your work without your permission a copyright wouldn't stop them. The copyright only helps you to prove that they stole it from you.
