I have researched this copyright question extensively and here is a decent overview:

I had a better one but I can't lay my hands on it right now. Here is an excerpt that I am copying at the risk of violating their copyright:

..."There are a number of myths out there concerning the necessity of getting
a license. Here are five. Don't make the mistake of believing them:
Myth #1: "The work I want to use doesn't have a copyright notice
on it, so it's not copyrighted. I'm free to use it."
Most published works contain a copyright notice. However, for works
published on or after March 1, 1989, the use of copyright notice is
optional. The fact that a work doesn't have a copyright notice doesn't
mean that the work is not protected by copyright."...
