Laisha, not sure how it works in the US, but in the UK and Europe, to get a copyright you need only announce it. However, the Copyright (c) blah, blah, blah, must be written in a certain way. I know this because I write novels and publish them on the web. I made my own site and asked a lawyer about copyright, and he said you need only show that the copyright is yours by writing it there.
