Though I am not an attorney and am not trying to be, according to some legal
eagle freinds of mine the copyright symbol really does no matter.  If it is
your work, ideas, designs, etc.. it is yours and it is illegal to copy this
work whether there is a copyright symbol or not.  Does anyone know if this
is right? I am curious if some of my lawyer buddies really know what they
are talking about.
