Dumb question, but how do you copyright your photo's?  

And if they are protected by copyright, that means you must have felt prepared to defend your copyright, or you wouldn't have bothered to copyright them.

How much $$$ is involved in getting a photo copyrighted or do you just have a "blanket" copyright for all your photos?

Me personally, I have way bigger fish to fry in life ... it's just how I roll.

There is no money involved in copyrighting a photo, basically a lot of sites like Flickr, DeviantArt ect. when you post you can attach licensing rights and copyrights to it.

Some are set solely for viewing, some for viewing and for posting on websites, and some can be set non commercial, non derivative, as in they cannot be sold by people other then the right holder, and modifying them to sell them is also not legal, and most people are under the false assumption that you can just alter something 20% (or any other %) and then do what you want with it, but it's just not true... just try copying anything else out there like a car 20% and put it for sale and you will have loads of legal action against you.

If it's one-off, unusual, or just plain wierd, I probably own it!
