: : : I am so new to this...but I do have a novel I am working on and I would like to put what I have on the net...how do I make sure that no one claims it for themselves?
: : : How do I copywright it?

: : Dear Mr. Fowler,

: : While the copyright law cover a work from the moment of creation, properly protecting a work requires an understanding of the statute.

: : The first rule is to publish with a UCC copyright notice. After that the application registration on a regular basis cost $30 in Official Fees. It takes from 3 weeks to 9 or ten months to get the Certificate. Rush filing cost $550 in Official fees, and is mostly limit to litigation situations.

: : We start our clients with a Reality Check™, to arm you with knowledge of the whole situation. May of our clients can then file their own application and or check with us for asssurance if there are quesions.

: :I have written several short stories, which I wish to copywrite before I send out to various magazines, with a view to printing should they be suitable. What is the procedure and how can I protect this work?

Dear Valerie Baxley,

I believe most authors take their chances. The big risk is that the idea is not protected. I do not believe that there is much taking of whole works that are submitted. If taken there is recource.
