Just be careful of your use of any online services such as Picasa. You may be giving them then right to sell your work to someone else.
I would guess that if you merely use the software and keep things on your own machine, you should be safe.

If your using a Nikon....I see your last upload was taken with a D300..!

You could try using the " Nikon ViewNX " software that was supplied with the camera, Its certainly a safer bet than Picasa.

Apart from being capable of doing the jobs you mention, It also provides you with access to " Picture Control " functions that are only available via a Nikon Software....!

TIP! Even if you do have a copy of Nikon ViewNX on disc, You would be wise to download ( Free From Nikon ) a copy of the latest version of ViewNX, It has had a number of improvements added since the discs where shipped on disc......Smile

There is nothing wrong with using Picasa to view raw files and it doesn't do a bad job of basic raw conversion either. Certainly a good way to go if you are not sure about whether you want to use raw. I haven't used recent versions of ViewNX but at one time you had to pay for it.

The only time you run the risk of relinquishing copyright is if you publish the images to a Google web album and that isn't something you can do by accident (well not easily anyway).

you can use Picasa without putting the images on line.
