Did Someone Steal Your Book Title?

Titles cannot be copyright protected. Which explains why you may find more than one movie, book, song etc. with the same name. Only the actual work product can be copyright protected.

So how do you protect that awesome book title that you came up with ??

YOU REGISTER IT AS A DOMAIN !!

This is the cheapest and best investment you will make in the marketing of your book. Most traditional publishers will actually require it. By owning the domain that spells out your title you have the opportunity to brand your book and to make it easy for buyers to find you.

If your title is: “How To Lose Weight” ……………… then register/reserve the domain: www.Howtoloseweight.com. You don’t even have to set anything up yet. Just make sure your awesome title is protected and reserved so that when you are ready to market your book, you have a domain to match. You should also reserve your name. Your fans will eventually start to look for other books by you. And they will type in your name to find you. So if you are: Jane Doe then register your www.JaneDoe.com domain before another Jane Doe beats you to it.

Should you worry about a Copyright?

The answer is YES!!! Technically the moment you create your work, you own the copyrights to it. However, should your ownership ever come into question, how will you prove that you are indeed the rightful owner? This is why you need to register your copyright declaration as soon as you have completed your book. If you anticipate major structural changes after editing, then wait until you have your polished work. If you are essentially done, go ahead and register your copyright to protect your ownership rights.

Copyright applications can still be done the old fashioned way, by mail. However, with new technology comes progress at the Library of Congress (LOC). The LOC’s United States Copyright office is now online. If you choose to file your copyright applications online, you will not only save money but will also get your certificate faster. Your date of registration will be based on when the Copyright office receives your documentation.

For more information on Copyright registration or to file an application go to:

The United States Copyright Office.
