You are incorrect.

Please read up on the matter before misleading people as you are quite
clearly not familiar with copyrights, patents, trademarks, and the
associated laws and conventions.  I assure you, however, that I was
correct in saying copyright is implicit from the time of creation.  From
US Copyright Law:

  (a) In General.-Copyright in a work created on or after January 1, 1978,
  subsists from its creation. . .

That is, copyright exists as soon as the work is created.
