Protect Your Work!
Copyright is a form of protection provided by the laws of the United States (title 17, U.S. Code) to the authors of "original works of authorship." This includes literary, dramatic, musical, artistic, and other wonderful works of art! This protection is available to both published and unpublished works. Copyright protection begins from the time the work is created and is secured automatically. The copyright in the work of authorship immediately becomes the property of the author who created the work.
