Much written material is put out on the Internet by authors who have not gone
through the formal and procedural process of getting their stuff copyrighted
through the Copyright Office at the Library of Congress. This material can be
viewed and accessed by millions. It seems, therefore, that this material would
be part of the public domain.

For instance, would the postings published here in this e-mail message room
(theos-talk) be considered "copyrighted" or part of the public domain to be
used freely by anyone?
