Already Under Copyright

Is there anyone else that reads Blogger TOS (that's Terms Of Service for the acronym challenged)

I don't understand why people need to write that their blog, hosted at Blogger.com is under copyright. It's already under copyright when you publish it so placing a widget, comment, button or post a complaint about copyright protection is just repetitive and redundant.

It also states the same thing over again. 

Here is what Blogger TOS has to say:

6a. CONTENT OWNERSHIP Unless stated otherwise for specific services, Member will retain copyright ownership and all related rights for information he or she publishes through Blogger or otherwise enters into Blogger-related services.

Write, post and rest in copyright protection peace.

If you want to allow certain uses of your blog, or display copyrights, then check out Creative Commons. They provide customized licenses for those dotcom-ers, too.
