When you write copy you have the right to copyright the copy you write, if the copy is right. If however, your copy falls over, you must right your copy.
If you write religious services you write rite, and have the right to copyright the rite you write.
Very conservative people write right copy, and have the right to copyright the right copy they write. A right wing cleric would write right
rite, and has the right to copyright the right rite he has the right to write.
His editor has the job of making the right rite copy right before the copyright can be right.
Should Jim Wright decide to write right rite, then Wright would write right rite, which Wright has the right to copyright. Duplicating that rite
would copy Wright right rite, and violate copyright, which Wright would have the right to right.
RIGHT

From the amount of confusion everyone seems to have about copyright, I wouldn't be surprised if the real laws regarding it looked just like this.

Something might be wrong in all of that. In many (most?) legal juristictions you do not specifically have to do anything to have copywright over your own creations, the act of creation means you have that right automatically.
Of course you may need to act in some way to protect your right to the right after you have written, but that is an issue about righting wrongs rather than asserting copywright.
awwwllrite?
