Re the copyright issue - you have made it cristal clear that your writing is your property. It is a murky situation at present - writers have no protection from theft of their work, unlike musicians, where everything is tied up and punishments are swift and severe.
I am now going to compose a copyright warning on my blog - it will be very similar to yours, for reasons of clarity and brevity and the fact that simple words work best. I trust it does not look like I'm copying yours.

Beth, thanks for visiting and commenting. I'm glad you found the copyright copy that I have on my blog to be useful. Feel free to use it as is, in part or whole as you deem fit.

Yes, so far, even very public instances of plagiarism (such as when Nora Roberts' work was pilfered) have incurred no fines for the wrongdoer and no compensation to the original writer.
