For the avoidance of any doubt (I hope!), let me make it clear. Writing
something down on one piece of paper is not publishing it, in any
sense. Stevan Harnad seems to be implying that because there is
copyright in a statement, that means it is published. Not so. The
concept of copyright can exist entirely independently of whether
something is published and does so exist in many, many millions of
instances. The extent and limits of copyright are different for
something that is published, compared with the extent and limits of
copyright for something that isn't.
