    While true, I've always wondered how the Religion Forum fits in. There are posters copying a Bible chapter by chapter, page by page, verse by verse. If that isn't a violation of copyright, not sure about any of the other posts.

    According to your own copy/paste of the copyright rules, it is.

    I believe the authors of the bible are dead long enough that there is no copyright protection, at least for the classic translations. If you posted something from the 'new children's bible' of some other recent translation you would have to deal with copyright.

    Legal Truth: “By U.S. copyright law, copyright is granted to a content creator the moment an idea is fixed into any tangible form,” Koustenis says. In plain English, that means that the moment a photographer clicks a shutter, a writer pens a story or an artist creates an image, it’s protected by copyright. The work doesn’t even have to be published to be protected by U.S. copyright laws. With regards to content published online, this means that every blog post and news article out there is copyrighted as well; images, music and videos are, too.
    Koustenis advises every website owner to put a copyright notice on their website. The footer is the most common area to do this, and you can do it today if you haven’t already. Registering a copyright is only necessary if you’re going to take legal action against someone for violating your copyright. In cases such as those, an attorney can help you expedite the copyright registration process.
