Thread Name: protecting your use of a pen name
Subject: RE: Registering copyright with a stage name
registering copyright is to safegaurd ownership of the rights to the work. If you register under a stage name - then in addition to proving your copyright registration in case of dispute you also have to prove your identity. I would say safer to copyright under your own legal name.

On the other hand - if you are incoperated you could copyright under the business name.
