How to Copyright a Book

Follow these steps to register your book, manuscript, online work (websites), poetry, or other text. Be aware that under international copyright law you automatically own the copyright in any literary or creative work you make yourself. Registering your copyright makes it easier to prove you claim if your work is plagiarized.
