    How do I apply the copyright symbol to my hub?

    I wrote a few poems, and I would like to copyright them on hubpages.  Could someone tell me how, please?

    To actually obtain a genuine copyright for your writing, you need to file the appropriate paperwork with the US Copyright Office.

    For a less comprehensive copyright that many use online, you can use a Creative Commons license,

    I'm not a copyright expert, but I think that simply publshing them on hubpages is proof they are yours.  I have had my noval, Undercover, copyrighted, though I doubt anyone is going to try to steal a noval that may never get published, anyway.  Its a lot of hard work getting anything out there, so most of our stuff is safe until it is already famous.  Then the problem is with somebody else making money off of your effort, and not giving you proper credit, but in the case of most of us, we haven't even made any money off of our own stuff, so who'd want to steal it.  To have an authentic copyright, you'd have to send it to :

    Library of Congress
    United States Copyright Office
    101 Independence Avenue SE
    Washington, DC 20559-6000

    and I think they have an email address, as well.

    Good luck,

    Anything that you publish that is your own and original work is considered intellectual property and is automatically copyrighted.  The only issue would be that you would need to be able to prove it was yours and the date you created it. 

    You can always keep a copy on the computer and print all your new work for a month duration and send it certified mail to yourself and don't open it when you receive it.  Poor mans copyright.  Because it established a date (the date sent) and if unopened it is not tampered with so it being certified verifies this legally.

    Hope that helps.
