How do I get a copyright?

Posted by on Jun 29, 2012 in Copyright

Many people wonder how do I get a copyright? The dirty little secret of copyright law is that you do not really need to do anything to obtain a copyright. Once you take that thought in your head and put it to paper you have already obtained a copyright in what you have written. It is not the legal process to register a copyright which gives the author the copyright but the process of creating the work in the first place. Granted, the protections offered from registering your copyright are much greater than the protection which is afforded to unregistered copyrights, however, unregistered copyrights are still able to be protected.
