It's more complex than that, isn't it? My novels have "Copyright 19xx
by David Dvorkin" in them, but I've granted permission to the various
publishers to publish them. Nonetheless, other than the rights granted
to the publishers in the contracts, I still have all rights and haven't
relinquished those rights. (I hope!)
