Copyrights and Ebooks


For anyone who has an ebook on Amazon or B&N: Do you have a copyright on your books? Did you do the whole register with the copyright office or a poor man's copyright? (Where you mail yourself a copy and not open it)
How does this work? Do we need it? If you publish on Amazon does that kind of save your rights in any way?
I'm almost ready. Now just ironing out the details.
That's a picture of Hemmingway's desk. I take inspiration from it.

A work of fiction that exists in some physical format, including either in print or ebook, is automatically copyrighted to the author. I didn't do anything else, although you can certainly copyright a book for a fee through the government. I haven't worried about it myself.

Ditto what Charles said. I've never published an e-book but I have self-published books and when you go through the process they register your book with the Library of Congress and give you an ISBN number. Do they do this with e-books? If they do - your work is safe.
