>The "copyright" that confuses you is probably the "collective" copyright that the ISP was claiming. They do NOT hold the copyright to anything that you write. They DO hold the "copyright" to the "collective work" (the sum of ALL the stuff on ALL the pages on their site). This prevents mirroring without their permission, or someone scavenging material from multiple pages and publishing it. Consider it to be like having a BIG landlord with a BIG legal pitbull.
