That was once not precisely the case, but it's been many, many years now since that changed. I was talking to my library science major daughter about this today, and she was surprised that not everybody knows this. These very words that I am typing right now become copyrighted to myself the moment I type them (as do yours). You don't need a license, and there is really only one reason to get one- to make it easier if you are intending to sue somebody in Federal Court should they violate your copyright.

Exactly. You so not have to have any form of copyright licence, number, or file anything with anyone in order for your work to be copyrighted. Anything that you create, write, or think, is by definition, yours. The copyright laws are there ONLY to protect what already belongs to you.
