Even though I dislike having to put any kind of legalese around on the site, it appears some people never understand the copyright concept. I've got some strong feelings on copyright in particular about what seems to be unreasonable duration, and some of which I won't publish here simply because it leads to argument and philosophical debate that doesn't change the existing law. The law is in place like it or not, the protections exist and will be applied as written.
