: I have written a script for an original game show idea complete with synopsis,format and rules. I have recently submitted the written work for copyright protection. Can one receive copyright protection or can another production firm make small changes to the format/idea and call it original?
Dear Mr. Guglilelmi,
I believe that getting an unpublished copyright is seldom worth the $30 filing fee.
Submitting a script without a confidentiality agreement is like walking naked in a snow storm.
