Thanks for debunking a misconception. My last contribution to this: how the
** can one prove authorship to a forwarded e-mail - I mean to a level of
"legal proof" - given that the audit trail is pretty darn thin?

No, there is no requirement that copyright be asserted; there is no
registration requirement; no need to to put Joe Bloggs (c) 2000. No need to
do anything. It subsists whether you like it or not. (But you can assert
that the whole world has a licence to use your work however it pleases. This
is a licence and it may be revoked if you change your mind in 20 years).
Not legal advice etc
