PureData is a programming language. The Diagram is the Program (tm). A 
program is legally considered as a literary work, in most countries that 
have a copyright law. According to some treaty in 1978, things do not need 
be registered with the copyright office and national library to be 
copyrighted: any copyrightable thing is copyrighted by default.

Switch to another school?

Get accustomed to having your brain 0wned by the school?
