    Search Google for the phrase "All rights reserved" and click I'm Feeling Lucky. You end up on the Apple Legal Information page.

    I happened to search on the phrase because I wanted to know more about just what rights are being reserved with this commonly used phrase.

    I know Apple Legal has been in the news on and off for the past few months, but I'm still surprised that Apple tops the list for such a common phrase.

    Number 2 on Google's list: Microsoft's Information on Terms of Use page. Did they really have to spell it "cpyright" in the URL or did their spellchecker fail? :rolleyes:

    Number 3 is what I was really looking for: What is Copyright Protection?

    For me MS was first, and Apple second.

    As for the URL, it has to be under 8 characters, right? ;)

    You get MS first if you don't hit "I'm feeling Lucky"

    if you type in "All Rights Reserverd" you get a pdf file....:D

    and if you type in "I'm Feeling Lucky" and hit I'm Feeling Lucky - you get google help features...

    Apple, Microsoft, Macromedia, Electronic Arts, ...

    Apparently using "all rights reserved" for copyright is a bigger issue for computer companies (even Apple, which is just as much about hardware as software) than for traditional publishers.
