American and Canadian Copyright Protection Basic Information

American and Canadian Copyright

Before I send any of my manuscripts out to book agents or book publishers in or out of my country, which is Canada, I copyright my work. This way, if my work is stolen and produced in any creative form other than myself approving the work in that fashion, I have the right to sue. Why? Because I have legal proof that I own that piece of work.

I also do not throw away any of my drafts - first draft, second draft, third draft, etc., or any research I may have done for writing the book. I date each draft with the current date I started that draft and as well as the research is also dated. Just in case, I have to sue, I can provide more proof than needed besides the copyright certificate for that work.

This is an excellent practice to do, who knows, one day you may need it. Hopefully, you don't , but at least you have the proof you are going to need to show lawyers and judges if you go into the court system to sue someone.
