How Do I Protect My Material?

How Do I Protect My Material?

Once you have your material or idea written in a tangible format, there are three things you can do to protect you against copyright infringement. The most important thing to do is to register your material the US Copyright Office - www.copyright.gov/. The second thing you can do is register your material with the Writers Guild OfAmerica - www.wga.org. This step, however, is not essential. Another way to protect yourself is to seal your material in an envelope and mail it to yourself using registered mail with the date on the packaging.
