I looked up copyright information, and loved the stuff they had on the Curtin University of Technology website. So I ganked some of it to explain what that small print over on the left means.
"The rights of copyright owners
Copyright is a bundle of exclusive rights to do, or authorise others to do, certain acts in relation to the protected material.

The exclusive rights in relation to artistic works are more limited, and consist of the rights to:
The Copyright Amendment (Moral Rights) Act 2000 amends the Copyright Act by providing two new "moral rights" for individual creators:
"Moral rights" are rights relating to a creator's reputation in connection with their work and have nothing to do with morality.

These new rights supplement the right of a creator not to have their work falsely attributed.
The Right of Attribution
The Right of Integrity
What does this mean to you,
the visitor to ClevelandWeirdness? Simply that all the stuff on our site was freely given to ClevelandWeirdness to further our mission of free dissemination of weirdness to all. So don't gank anything without attributing it to the source, don't take anything here and make a profit off it without discussing it & partnering with the owner of the stuff, don't pass off someone else's work as your own, and the universe will probably slap you really hard someday if you do.
