I write Poetry, some of which I feel could be good lyrics for music. I would like to submit these lyrics to various artists, but I know I need to Copywrite them. How do I go about it?

If you've already reduced the lyrics to writing (i.e., you've "written them down"), then they're copyrighted.  You may wish to register your copyright, which you can do using the forms and instructions at www.copyright.gov.

If I were to show someone any of my work and they write it down, whos to know the real author? Or is that where the registering of "my" copyright comes in?
