A copyright protects original works or authorship including literary, musical, and dramatic works, as well as photographs, audio and visual recordings, and other intellectual property works.
Copyright protection begins as soon as the work is fixed in a tangible medium. The author should begin using the copyright symbol immediately as a method of informing others that he intends to exercise control over the production, distribution, display, and or performance of the work. While it is not necessary to file for copyright protection, doing so will make it easier to seek court enforcement of your copyright.
