One of the most frequently asked questions regarding the protection of website content is how to let users know that the author claims ownership. A popular misconception is that posting material on the Internet is tantamount to delivering it into the public domain. Such is not the case. An author of website content is entitled to the same protection under the Copyright Act as the creator of a book, magazine article, or screenplay. How does the author assert these rights? The answer lies in the legal concept of notice.
