Published author Rose Marie Kern talks about how to copyright your book and other literary works.

Published author Rose Marie Kern will talk about How to Copyright Your Book.

Whether or not you plan to send your manuscript to a traditional publisher or opt to self-publish, you are going to want to ensure that the legal rights to your story are protected. The U.S. Copyright office allows you to personally register your work – you do not have to go through any other entity! We will go over how to do that – and if you have a book ready to be copyrighted you can bring your laptop and we will do it right there!

The book does not have to be in final printed or electronic form, but once you pay for the copyright ($55) you must have sent a finished copy to them within a few months.
