: thank you for the *all rights reserved* definition...
: to expand somewhat:
: i have a computer-based project, which requires a PC and the Microsoft browser... it contains photos, gif graphics, sounds, self-composed text, layout design, title, etc. -- and various features that rely on internet and browser-specific scripting technologies; however, it is intended for local hard drive usage, not the internet... will be sold on CDs and downloaded from my website...
: would i be correct in registering the project for a *multimedia work* copyright?
: best regards,
If you make a mistake and get a copyright registration on the wrong form, it is my understanding that it is still protected. There are little in things that may be overlooked by the do it yourselfer. I myself like to do it myself and I don't trust doctors. It is hard to know if the diagnosis is correct and if the tests are necessary and correct and whether or not you are spending more than you have to. I have found the doctor I can trust. I had a recent problem with my feet. The doctor explained that although my shoes had never been a problem, having irritated both feel, they were swollen and the "good" shoes were too small and irritating the swollen feet. With this information, a week in slippers allowed my feet to heal and now my feet are all right and all my shoes are just as good as they always had been. A problem you may be infolved with on the basis of what you say is, what you propose to do may include a possible infringement.
