Register your copyright?

    Can someone explain to me how process works? It seems to be a pain to have to do it for each article. Do we have to? And do we have to for each article?

      You automatically own the copyright to your work on HubPages. No extra steps are needed, though content thieves often don't care and may steal your work anyway, at which point you may need to file a DMCA complaint with the site owner, the web host, or with Google to have the content removed from search.

        Christy, with all that being said, is it really necessary to manually add the copyright notice in Hubtool?

    It's completely unnecessary

      So you do not have to register your copyright right?

        When you write a new article all you do is click on the right side of the page. You add a bio and the copywrite and date is there. Set and save and they are added to the bottom of your articles. No need to register then. Hubs has a disclaimer at the bottom of each page about copy rights. I hope this helps.

          Yes, but even if you don't add the copyright info on you page, you still have the copyright, and you can still file a DMCA to have a copy taken down if it is stolen.
