: What is the procedure for copywrighting a book of true personal experiences, I have chosen not to use real names will that make a difference?
It makes no difference as far as the copyright law is concerned whether or not the book is of true personal experience. The use of fictious names may give some protection against claims involved with liable or invasion of privacy.
The copyright law protects the work from the moment of creation. There is a 100 year period in which to register a copyright. The registration of the copyright enables the enforcement of the copyright. There are two types of copyrights. Published and unpublished.
Copyrighting a book dependant on the circumstnces. Copyrights are usually registered when a book is published.
