Only as applied to a given work.  Copyright protection need not be
asserted in the license document itself, and in fact does not appear to
be in older, simple licenses like the BSD and MIT/X11 licenses.

Following the FSF's lead, everybody and his brother now copyrights the
text of their licenses.  I'm not sure that's a good thing...
