    I am fairly new to website development and I have a few sites I'm transferring to Dreamweaver. I have noticed on several sites small print of the site being copyrighted. I can understand the legal implications of someone duplicating a website, but with whom would I register this copyright? The US government? An ISP?

    Thanks again,
    JTN

    i'm assuming that a lot of websites simply stick the copyright symbol and words on their pages without going through the procedure though

    you might want to ask the folks in the
    Development Forum for their opinion/practice

    technically anything you create is your property including pics and your web design, so that is why everyone puts that copywrite symbol on their website. if your worried about people using your images off your website the best thing to do is to watermark them that way their is hard evidence that they are your property.

    as long as you can prove that they're yours in the first place, and you created them before someone else did - in the case of a dispute over ownership

    hence the library of congress registration system

    cruel world out there
