Adding a Creative Commons License

Intellectual property is a fascinating area of law that is being tested and modified each day due to the phenomenal increase in online publishing. To protect original material, authors will typically seek copyright protection for their materials.

Copyright laws vary from country to country, but in the U.S. original material is considered to be copyrighted the moment it is written—whether the author ever identifies it as being copyrighted or not. So, as an author of original material, you can identify that material as being your own by placing a copyright symbol and your name somewhere onyour weblog at any time. Although this is considered legal in the U.S., to truly protect your work, you do want to register your copyright with the U.S. Copyright office.
