Do I need to mark my work with the Copyright symbol?

Copyright Guide

I was doing some further research and found out that creator copyright ownership is protected for up to 50 years after the creator’s death.

So why Copyright your work?

I think its because copyright protects against unauthorized reproduction, distribution, altering of piece in any way, and performing or displaying the work publicly.

I also read that known facts, names, titles, and clauses are not protected.
