Is this an indicator that the words are copyright to the person who comments? Or that they are copyright to C19 because they are hosted here? I have known a major forum close down and none of the threads were officially allowed to be saved or copied for posterity because it was claimed by the owner of the site that they "owned" everything that had been written there.
Thanks!! At least I'm not going crazy and seeing things! Just read through the graphics stolen thread and am so sorry to see that people would do something like that. On the plus side, I also figured out why my computer keeps dinging at me when I try to right click to open a link in a new window. Who knew someone would do that in order to steal a picture?!
I have to admit that I've found it useful. I used to have to scroll back up to look at who posted a long message or who posted a long list of pictures. But not any more! Now it's nicely listed at the bottom in the copyright who it is I need to thank for the pictures.
I'm working on training myself to put an extra hard return after a post so that it leaves a nice space between my text and my copyright notice.

I was a bit confused when I saw the copyright too! It all makes sense now.
Sadly, this hits close to home. I have a friend with a successful online business and review blog who has had an online stalker that has stolen her business images, contacts, product reviews, etc. It is so violating and I am really glad that C19 is protecting us from image/text theft before it happens! Thanks guys!
He could not forget the touch of her arms around his neck, impatiently felt as it had been at the time; but now the recollection of her clinging defence of him, seemed to thrill him through and through,--to melt away every resolution, all power of self-control, as if it were wax before a fire. -Elizabeth Gaskell from "North and South"
