How to Copyright


Registering a copyright with the United States Copyright Office is easy and can be accomplished without the services of the most famous of middlemen, the lawyer. Registering a non-dramatic literary work requires sending the Copyright Office:

     1. A completed two page government form (Form TX).
     2. A copy of your work.
     3. A check/money order for $20 (USD).
