Best Answer
Web Page Copyrights

Here are several opinions and answers from Wiki ers:

  • Generally speaking, yes, even if you don't see a copyright notice. According to the U.S. Copyright Office, "The original authorship appearing on a website may be protected by copyright. This includes writings, artwork, photographs, and other forms of authorship protected by copyright. Procedures for registering the contents of a website may be found in Circular 66, Copyright Registration for Online Works."
  • Not necessarily an easy question to answer. Best to do some research on your own. May as well get it from the horse's mouth.
