Good info to know. This info is primarily U.S based so check out your country’s copyright law. There is a link in this article to European laws. I just looked up some info for my home (Australia) and i found this, which i am breaking copyright law no doubt to share with you. How ironic.
“You do not apply for copyright in Australia, and there is no system of registration here. Nor are there any forms to fill in, or fees to be paid. You do not need to publish your work, put a copyright notice on it, or do anything else before your work is covered by copyright – the protection is free and automatic, from the time a work is first written down or recorded in some way. For example, as soon as a poem is written, or a song is recorded, it is protected.”
The above info is from The Australia Copyright Council www.copyright.org.au. I hope they don’t sue me.
