: Is it possible to copywrite a website ? if so can i copywrite one that is updated in a continule basis, and does that copywrite writings and such on the site
Both the software and the content of a web site are covered by copyright. The copyrights are best registered after the use (publication) of the web site. Changes should be updated with new registrations. Its a waste of time and money to update for every minor change. It is wise to us a Copyright Notice.
The web site may use a trademark or service mark that ought to be registered. It is urgent to search trademarks before they are adopted and to register them asap. Unless there is an infringement there is usually no rush to register a copyright, though rights are lost if the copyright is not registered promptly.
