The first person to 'publish' that phrase technically has rights to it. If they did so in the US, those rights expire in 3 months unless they file for copyright protection.

The operative phrase here is 'publish'. Write it in a college term paper and print one copy for your prof isn't publication.

As Annemarie said, I'm not a lawyer, so this is mostly anecdotal. Add in the incredible influence the Internet is having on international copyright law and even the pros don't really know just yet.

I like the idea of a book...a compilation of personal experiences, interwoven with dissertations on the various impacts on our lives, perhaps with some 'expert testimony'. Something like "Our Mothers, Our Selves" (in format, not subject).
