How do I copyright my hubs - I am posting a serialized version of an original work and would like to know how to protect it and the other hubs please...is there some kind of notice to attach?
Thanks so much
But, once you publish something it is copyrighted to you. You can also go here:
The only thing that officially copyrighting your work gives you, I believe, is the ability to sue for additional monetary damages -- or something like that. I know it has something to do with money and the courts.
Thanks so much all - so it is the same as songwriting - the copyright exists as of the date the work is created - but I can register it with /at one of those links.
I will check out the links, and thanks again.
How will I know if someone has snitched my work, btw - how does one search for that info and where?
Most common way to learn of copyright infringement is through word of mouth; at least in my experience.
