Protection and Copyright

I just deleted my previous post regarding this same subject.  I had the Wrong information and I did not want my readers to have incorrect info about Copyrights.

This is the Correct information:

For works published after March 1, 1989, no copyright notice need be placed on the work in order for full copyright protection to apply. From a practical standpoint, however, an author should always place the following notice on his or her work: Copyright © 1997 by Author’s Name. All Rights Reserved. The reason for this advice is purely practical; such a notice warns people who view the work that the author takes copyright issues seriously and may have a deterrent effect upon possible infringers, especially those who are unfamiliar with the intricacies of copyright law. 

Please accept my apologizes if I led you in the wrong direction about this.

I would like to thank Audrey over at https://mnprairieroots.com/ for bringing my error to my attention.

Write on my friends!

    This is pretty much what I thought, but I didn’t have time to look it up after reading your post and didn’t want to say something in case I was wrong.
