Thread Name: How to check out a copyright
Subject: RE: BS: How to check out a copyright
Exactly. You can assert copyright over something you wrote at any time -- the burden of proof is on whoever challenges your authorship. Copyright assertion gives you some protection, but full copyright protection has to be obtained from the Library of Congress's Copyright Office.
