Sure -- if some terms are provided which give me rights, then those

Raul, when I put
(C) Humberto Massa 2004
I am not reserving any rights nor de-reserving them. Other dispositions (being them alongside the text or not*) do that. The copyright notice has _only_ _one_ _purpose_: to indicate the name of the copyright holder(s)

* = if the dispositions were obligated to be alongside the work, then the printing contract of every book would have to be alongside the text, all the copyright disposition/contracts of a movie would have to be shown with the credits... you got the meaning
