How Do I Copyright My Work?

Copyright Basics

How long does a copyright last?The term of copyright for a particular work depends on several factors, including whether it has been published, and, if so, the date of first publication. As a general rule, for works created after January 1, 1978, copyright protection lasts for the life of the author plus an additional 70 years.

Do I have to renew my copyright?No. Works created on or after January 1, 1978, are not subject to renewal registration.
