    Yes, as soon as it is fixed in a "tangible medium" it is copyrighted.

    The copyright is not held by the community owners or the moderators, but my the member who posts it. Where copyright is explicitly expressed or not, it is still copyright to the owner. Though by posting it on Orkut, users may have certain permission, if outlined within their TOS.
