Which town, state, country, continent are you talking about? To the best of
my knowledge (poor), in Australia, you have to actually indicate the work is
copywrite. This is done by placing a C in a circle with the date on the
document/code or writing the word "copywrite", by whom and the date. While I
am Australian, I currently live in Sweden and have no idea what is required
by law here! Maybe it's the same, maybe not!
I can buy legally codine and paracetomol, mixed, without a doctors
prescription in Australia, with a prescription in Sweden but in the
Philippines, it would be totally illegal and I could go to goal for having it
in my possesson.
This is really off-topic on a technical list like gentoo-dev but would
probabley be quite ok on a list like debian-legal. I have no interest in
your legal options and rather you keep them too a list where the subject
would be on topic or in private, at least that way you don't taint everyone
with your views legally. If you requested information I trust you have done
it on a personal interest basis only and not implicated a whole lot of
innocent people who read Gentoo-dev.
Sorry for the totally off topic post and the views expressed are my own and
are of no legal value anywhere.
