Copyright means that to use the copyrighted material you must first gain permission from the copyright holder. Copyrightable material is any work sprung from your creative efforts ("including literary, dramatic, musical, artistic, and certain other intellectual works") and fixed in tangible form (this applies to computer memory).
Images that are not copyright are known as clip art and they are part of the public domain. Use caution when acquiring images if it does not specifically say that it is clip art.
Copyright notices may look like © or (c) or just flat out say "copyright". The moment a picture is created it is copyrighted by its creator, whether or not they include a notice. Though it is not necessary to register material with the Copyright Office, it is wise to do so when the material is to be used commercially. Ownership of original artwork does not constitute ownership of copyrights and must specifically purchased.
