Somebody gave you bad information.

You own the copyright to everything you write, whether it contains a
copyright notice or not, and you can only transfer that copyright explicitly.

Treat things you read on the Internet the same way you treat things you read
in books and magazines, and you won't go far wrong. ...RM
