Maty, there's a rubric on this in the Help! section, saying you still hold it. But of course that doesn't mean they would defend it themselves?

My understanding is that if a writer identifies his/her work by putting the copyright symbol, a c with a circle around it-or I think just writing out the words 'copyright 2005 (or whatever year) by so-and-so, then one has legal protection. One can also go through filling out copyright forms, paying a fee, and officially registering work at the US Library of Congress. I don't know how writers in other countries handle the issues. It's a good question, and maybe others will have more to add.
