Ok, that said, I did not write these stories and information, etc, I can
not give you permission to copy or use any of them. Same

There are a lot of subtleties and international variations but that's
the gist of it. If you create something, and it fits the definition of a
creative work, you get to control who can make copies of it and how they make
copies, with some important exceptions.
Nothing done by the U.S. government can be copyrighted inside the USA.
And of course you can't copyright something somebody else did without their
permission, or derive your work from their work.
In its simplest form making copies is making copies. Computers have added
some recent complications, like the temporary copies in packet buffers or on
screens, and copies left on backup tape. But you can go pretty far by assuming
that just about any computerized operation on a work involves copying it. And
simply, the copyright holder gets to say if you can do this. But that's where it
all gets modified by the issues of ...
Most of copyright has to do with commerce. In fact, one major reason it's
there is that most people believe that if you let people have copyrights and

Copyright is also about control of one's creations -- particularly in most
non-US. countries which explicitly recognize "moral copyrights."
Copyright laws which allows certain types of copying without permission
in areas where it is felt that some more important social principles would be
violated otherwise. The "fair use" doctrine (fair dealing in Canada and some

Some Copyrights legal basics
Under the Berne copyright convention, which almost all major nations have
signed, every creative work is copyrighted the moment it is fixed in tangible
form. No notice is necessary, though it helps legal cases. No registration is
necessary, though it's needed later to sue. The copyright lasts until 70 years

Glacier National Park is located in the northwest
corner of Montana, just north of Columbia Falls. The park encompasses more
than one million acres and is home to grizzly bear, moose, elk, along
with 63 varieties of wild mammals. While most of the roads in Glacier
National Park are closed off during the winter, this provides miles and
miles of tracks for snowshoeing and cross country skiing. Visitors are
seldom around in the dead of winter, so the muffled hush of the
snow covered woods is especially enticing and serene.
A ski or snowshoe trip along the Going-to-the-Sun Road, which is
one of the most scenic roads in North
America, is a great option, according to park rangers. The road is
closed to cars from September or October until snowmelt, usually in
June. Several short hiking trails branch off from the road, which
would be excellent for snowshoeing or skiing in the winter season.
Once you have your gear, head up to Glacier National Park
for an exciting adventure. Guided snowshoe trips are available, led by a
park naturalist, and are highly recommended. If you are looking for an
informative tour, snowshoeing is an easy way to explore the winter
wonderland of this unique park. Snowshoeing will provide even the novice
an effortless activity so your senses are more in tune with your
environment and your guide's knowledge on the history, wildlife,
geology, and biology of this precious ecosystem.
