"All Rights Reserved" was a magic phrase necessary for copyright
protection under the Pan-American Copyright Treaty.  It is my
understanding that there are still signatories to this treaty which
have not agreed to the Berne Convention, so it's still a good idea to
continue to say "All Rights Reserved" to be sure to have protection in
such countries.
