    Hi there,

    These two links should be helpful. By default, all of your original content is covered by an implicit copyright, but it is a good idea to include a copyright notice on your site.

    This site, from the US Copyright Office explains copyright law: http://www.copyright.gov/help/faq/faq-protect.html

    Plagiarism and your copyright are your responsibilities, and just so you know, if you put something on the internet, it is almost certain someone is going to copy it, repost it as their own or use it in some other illegal way. Welcome to the internet.

    The only way to keep this from happening is to NOT put anything on the internet.
