I would say going to a web page owned by someone else and posting code
snippets would be you specifically saying here, here is some code,
have fun unless you specifically put restrictions on it's use.

I may be completely off base, but it makes more sense. I mean if it
was the case that someone has to specifically say "this is public
domain" then why does every book have a copywright notice in it? If it
was implicit that the owner retains all rights by distributing

I'm not trying to start a flame war or anything, I consider this an
interesting discussion.
