Copyrighting work
« on: Oct 23, 2006, 02:54:06 AM »
Vlad raised a point of copyright  ... is anyone on GB concerned that their work is NOT copyrighted?

According to http://www.copyright.gov/  ... (this is a good site for reference purposes when considering publishing in the U.S.A.)

Copyright protection is available for all unpublished works, regardless of the nationality or domicile of the author.

Copyright protection subsists from the time the work is created in fixed form. The copyright in the work of authorship immediately becomes the property of the author who created the work. Only the author or those deriving their rights through the author can rightfully claim copyright.

The Wiki reference is also good to read: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Copyright

Check poor man's copyrighting and the pitfalls:

This is something I really haven't given any thought to *sticks head in sand*. Am used to referencing others' works with due respect re IP, but never thought to apply same consideration to my own stuff. Thanks for the links, KC (and I love your avatar).

Thanks  :)

That's what my woman calls me "Coyote - The Trickster" as I always get her to do stuff she never contemplated she'd do or thought she'd agree to do or even want to do and finds she enjoys doing it anyway ;) and doesn't remember how I got her to do it. :)
