Is there a way of copyrighting a svg file ?
I mean, how an author can be sure that his work will not be modified without
his authorization ?

The big advantage of the Flash format is that the file can not be edited
without the source, thus author rights are respected.
If you, reader, are an author, will you turn from Flash to SVG if there is
no more copyright on your work ?

I'm afraid that SVG might not be used for real content like "web cartoon"
because of this lack of copyright. I hope not !
