Copyright © on Javascript .js files

I have noticed that many .js files on the web have copyright symbol with the name of the author.
Is it enough to place a double-bracketed note in them to estabilish that they cannot be copied or what else?
Also, is there a software which compresses them eliminating spaces, etc. and reduces their dimensions?

I've also noticed that the .js file appears already condensed (without spaces and carriage returns) in the Frontpage text preview, so with the software above I gain little space in KB; probably the worst problem is compressing the HTMLm which is about 140 KB.

I thought it was necessary to deposit the object to some authority archive and pay some lump sum. Thanx.
