Bob: Guess what? My epic video of me burning Justin Bieber's CD got me a YouTube strike because of copyright.

To claim as one's own. Big corporations normally do it so people don't steal their ideas. Then, as soon as somebody does in the slightest way, they jump on the opportunity and sue their ass for an unreasonable sum of money.
Bob: Hey, I should invent that...
Bill: No, you can't, Big corporation (c) already took it.

Just like "employees must watch hands," this is a group of words that nobody reads. It's just a friendly reminder that the guy who typed what's copywritten will shake his fist at you if he finds out you take credit for his work.
Jim: You can't take that, it's got a copyright!
Doug: Just watch me. (copies and pastes jim's work!)
Jim: Noooo! *shakes fist at Doug!*
Doug: My name is Doug!
Jim: *KABOOM*
Doug: that showed him.
