Whether you are an artist, website designer, writer, or musician, you need to take steps to protect your creative works, i.e your paintings, stories, website designs or songs. Although you automatically have a copyright in your creative works, you should still register your works with the United States Copyright Office. Only those with a registered copyright can immediately file a lawsuit in Court to stop another person or entity from using the copyrighted work.
