The last time I looked into copyright laws (quite a few years ago), I
learned that the most recent (at that time) change to the copyright laws
automatically protects something written from the moment it is written,
regardless of whether or not it has the copyright notice on it. Has this
changed?

Is there a "user-friendly" (read "dummies") resource on copyright law that
somebody could recommend?
