The good news is that copyright is, in essence, very simple: When you create something, from a poem to a painting, you own the copyright on it automatically. There are no forms to fill in and no claims to make (though if you think it might be worth millions in the future, it’s a good idea to get some kind of proof that you are the original creator of the work).

That applies to the web too, so—broadly speaking—when you put something up online, it belongs to you and you can take steps if someone tries to pass off your work as theirs.
