I just discovered a really nice FREE service called Copyrighted.
You can protect your personal websites, pictures / photos, poetry, computer programs, books, etc.
I'm in the process of going through all my photos on DA and copyrighting them so that way if someone decides to steal my works of art, I can prosecute them. The website ensures that your work is protected with a digital fingerprint so there's always prof of your ownership to your work.
All my DA watchers should look into the service so that you have prof of ownership of your works.
Now I do have a question regarding copyrights that I need answered by someone who knows more about copyrights than I do. Can you copyright FanFiction? While the characters are from someone else (SEGA), the writing is of my own conception. The plots are not from the TV shows, video games, or the Comics...and are completely of my own.
Found out you cannot copyright FanFiction unless the names of the characters are of your own. Makes sense.
