  the creator of an original work exclusive rights to determine
  whether, and under what conditions, this original work may be

  A copyright is a form of protection provided by the laws of the
  United States to authors of "original works of authorship." This
  includes literary, dramatic, musical, artistic and certain other
  creative works.

  Use of the notice informs the public that a work is protected
  by copyright, identifies the copyright owner, and shows the year
  of first publication.

  The purpose of copyright law is to promote the progress of useful
  arts and science by protecting the exclusive right of authors
  and inventors to benefit from their works of authorship.

  How long does copyright last? [for the US]
  As a general rule, for works created after January 1, 1978,
  copyright protection lasts for the life of the author plus an
  additional 70 years.

  You have copyright on any creative work you document in "fixed"
  form. ... You register copyright to reserve the right to sue for
  damages when your rights are infringed. It costs $35 to register
  a copyright for each item, kinda.
