How do I get copyright for my book?

In the United States, copyright exists from the moment of creation. It’s recognized by the government as a way to protect original material.

The Library of Congress provides registration for copyrights through the United States Copyright Office. Registration isn’t required to claim a copyright, but it can be helpful in litigation circumstances. For more information on U.S. copyright law, please visit the United States Copyright Office website
