How Do I Copyright My Work?
As soon as a qualifying work is created in a tangible form, it is initially protected under US copyright law. This means it can’t be used or reproduced in any way without the copyright owner’s permission. The copyright owner can be the original creator or it can be transferred to another entity. You don’t have to register your work to protect it under copyright, but copyright registration confers a number of benefits to creators and is required to formally enforce rights.
