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".

[marinersk]: LanX, the problem is that the lack of interface visual stability is disconcerting to me. The Nodelet appearing and disappearing is distracting, and despite over a decade, still troubles me. It jangles me.
[LanX]: I see
[marinersk]: I appear to be unusually dependent on spacial stability. I have had trouble from someone moving an object a mere four inches to the left.
[Eily]: I think the solution is to write posts so brilliant that you gain XP on each refresh, no matter how often :P
[marinersk]: Eily++ and LOL
[marinersk]: I get a lighter version of this disconcertion (new word?) when the n points remaining until rank disappears.
