Answers to Copyright Questions

In the past few days I have come across a couple things relating to copyright and copyright infringement.

First, I just finished reading a book which has been very helpful. I found it free on Smashwords.com. The book is: They Stole Your Book. Now What? by Ruth Ann Nordin.

Ms Nordin had a number of books which were stolen from Amazon.com and released under another person’s name and once under a different title. She had to jump through numerous hoops, write to Amazon, and even consult with a copyright attorney. Her book assists those who may find themselves in a similar predicament.

Yesterday I found a website called My Free Copyright. They offer absolutely FREE Copyright Protection. I tried it here on this blog and had no problems with it, nor any bill or receipt. Just a notice that my blog is now “safe”.© is the copyright symbol in a copyright notice

Check out these two resources. I know that you will find a lot of help from either or both of them.

Don’t forget, anything on the internet is easy to get hold of, steal, and call your own. Copyright is your protection from “web theft”.
