August 29, 2008, Newsletter Issue #147: More on Book Copyrights

Tip of the Week

By law, you automatically own the book copyrights to any work you have created. It is a good idea, though, to have a book copyright notice on the back of your title page. A copyright notice should include the letter "c" in a circle or the word "copyright," the year of publication, and the owner of the copyright. Also include the statement: "All rights reserved." Within three months of self publishing a book, you may also register the copyright, establishing a public record of your claim.
