Here is a great post about all aspects of copyright. I always recommend my clients get their book copyrighted. It takes a bit of time and thegovernment copyright page is not as straightforward as I’d like it to be, but it’s definitely doable for most people.
And as the post mentions, it’s not that expensive, so why not?
I’m sure I’ve shared posts on copyright before, but it’s always good to have a refresher. It’s quite easy to get an official copyright for anything you publish and even though it doesn’t help someone from taking your work electronically, it’s an inexpensive safeguard ($55 for electronic submission) if you every need to enter the court system. And Dave gives some examples of text used on a copyright page for those indie publisher out there!
Thanks Dave and Lawyer Steve!
