From what I've learned by posting and reading postings on this site I'm finding out just how hard it is for most of us to fully protect what we create on the internet.

If copyright requires registration to be effective how can one copyright the contents of ones web site. Would it not require that every single picture, mpeg file and text page be registered as separate items? And if you changed a page you would then have to reregister the corrected page?

Most commercial sites have the usual "terms and conditions" but to have any teeth have they had to do all of this or are they just blowing smoke if they have not?
