Rob, the copyright of any work begins at the moment of tangible creation and belongs to the creator with no registration of the copyright nor © copyright symbol needed. Now your post below gave an indication that your are an attorney, so I think you should do some research on past and current copyright law as you've misinformed the posters on your fine website (and I'm not being insuting in any manner as I post here and consider it a fine website). Here's a few links to pursue for posters regarding copyrights of photos and art in general:






and an excellent source with many links:

Granted, I don't know squat about state courts or bankruptcy law, but then I don't comment on them and then list my legal credentials.

I do know a lot about IP law. Why? Because that is what my clients pay me for. In this case, the photog knows more than the J.D. Fordham 1998.

Since before you started law school, copyright notice has been optional in the US under the Berne convention. In fact, there is no legal benefit to putting a notice on your work. There is a legal benefit to registration as timely registration increases the money you may get if you bring an infringment action and registration is a requirement to bring an infringement action.

Jay has listed some good resources, and I would add the US Library of Congress as another good reference, if he hasn't already listed it.

Send me a message at ket354(at)yahoo(dot)com if you need my pedigree.

    BMW Neue Klasse - a birth of a Sports Sedan

    Unveiling of the Neue Klasse Unveiled in 1961, BMW 1500 sedan was a revolutionary concept at the outset of the '60s. No tail fins or chrome fountains. Instead, what you got was understated and elegant, in a modern sense, exciting to drive as nearly any sports car, and yet still comfortable for four.   The elegant little sedan was an instant sensation. In the 1500, BMW not only found the long-term solution to its dire business straits but, more importantly, created an entirely new

    History of the BMW 2002 and the 02 Series

    In 1966, BMW was practically unknown in the US unless you were a touring motorcycle enthusiast or had seen an Isetta given away on a quiz show.  BMW’s sales in the US that year were just 1253 cars.  Then BMW 1600-2 came to America’s shores, tripling US sales to 4564 the following year, boosted by favorable articles in the Buff Books. Car and Driver called it “the best $2500 sedan anywhere.”  Road & Track’s road test was equally enthusiastic.  Then, BMW took a cue from American manufacturers,

    The BMW 2002 Production Run

    BMW 02 series are like the original Volkswagen Beetles in one way (besides both being German classic cars)—throughout their long production, they all essentially look alike—at least to the uninitiated:  small, boxy, rear-wheel drive, two-door sedan.  Aficionados know better.   Not only were there three other body styles—none, unfortunately, exported to the US—but there were some significant visual and mechanical changes over their eleven-year production run.   I’ve extracted t
