Thread Name: COPYRIGHT ???
Subject: RE: COPYRIGHT ???
In Britain there is no need to apply for copyright.

Copyright automatically subsists with the composer of the song, poem or whatever. As long as you can prove that you are the author, (and mailing a letter to yourself would be as good a way as any) you do not need to take any further steps as far as establishing copyright is concerned.

In the States the situation is somewhat different.
