A few years ago, you took an online creative writing class and wrote a poem to fulfill one of the class assignments. A portion of the assignment required that you post your poem to the discussion board so that your student colleagues could critique it. One year later, you are thumbing through your favorite Poetry Anthology Journal, and you realize that the poem you are reading is familiar—in fact, it is your poem from the creative writing class. You are trying to remember if you took your instructor’s advice on copyrighting the poem.
