    If I place a copyright notice with the test widget, would that be permitted or would I need permission from WordPress?

    The blog I need help with is mwcpt78.wordpress.com.

    Why would you need permission from WordPress? Are you trying to use something that is copyrighted by WordPress? Then you need permission. If you’re just asserting your own copyright on your own materials then you don’t.

    If I need a copyright on my blog, I don’t need any restricitons?

    Copyright law applies in cyberspace just as it does offline. Copyright is vested in the creator at the time of creation. If you wish to place a notice on your blog with regard to your own creations you can do that either on a Page or in a text widget. See here > http://en.support.wordpress.com/prevent-content-theft/
