    I know what it means, but how can what it protects be used? A lot of time I see text or images on the web that's been copied from somewhere else, and the person who puts it on his/her webpage just puts © after the text/picture. Does that mean that it's OK to use the it, if you just say who the copyright belongs to?

    Although I work for an IP Law Office, we primarily function within the procedures of the USPTO (patents, trademarks). Copyright is somewhat of a different story.
