copyright has it's problems, i agree, but there's one more which is missing.. try to get a copyright on something.. it's not so easy for the average Joe...

Well this is just plain wrong... in most countries that follow the Berne Convention the default assumption in law is that something (this is true in the US since 1990 or so .. i could google but i am lazy this morning) is copyrighted unless it is explicitly stated not to be. However to make explicit that you are claiming copyright over your words/images/whatever all you need is a notice like "copyright 2007 by Rob Wolfe".

Now really, how hard is that?

Nothing happens.

Working...
