The few cases I've seen treat emails just like snailmail...that you own the
total rights to your message, and that they appear the moment you commit
your thoughts into words. As a practical matter, I don't suppose you can do
much to enforce them, but they're theoretically existent.

I have a generic (personal not work-related) e-mail question:

If an e-mail is sent from a personal computer to a variety of people,
in various countries as well as the US,
is it considered 'published electronically' with regular publication


Is ANY e-mail considered 'published' as soon as it leaves the author's
