    The easiest/cheapest way to 'copyright' your work in any country, is to mail it to yourself. I know it sounds weird, but having a sealed and post-dated envelope with your work inside will establish in any court of law that you are the creator of that work, should anyone attempt to use it without permission. Mailing something to yourself is a much simpler/cheaper alternative to going through the actual legal process of copywriting something, and will protect your creative license just as well.
