First of all, you don't "copyright things", other than by creating it.

That's not true. You can register a Copyright, and it really limits your legal options if you don't register that Copyright (under US law).

It's even one of the issues to be resolved in this case: Can Oracle sue for infringement of "37 APIs" given that Copyright it registered is not specifically for those "37 APIs".
