FWIW -- legally, copyright in the US exists from the time a person's words are in fixed form. That means if they are in a post under someone's log-in, then they legally belong to the person making the post. (this is mainly for things like people's original stories, but it applies across the board).

Reposting while claiming ownership is in violation of federal law. :reading:
