When a book is put on paper in a finished form (whether it is published or not), by law there is an implied copyright placed on the product. This means that no one else can reproduce your work or use it for financial gain without your permission. When we publish your work, you are essentially giving us the nonexclusive right to print, reproduce, market and sell your work for a particular period of time (usually a year). We retain no other rights. All other rights belong to you. You have the right to use the work as you see fit. You can even have another publisher publish the book for you, at the same time as us, if you want to. The copyright is in your name.
For an extra fee, we can register the work at the US Copyright Office. This provides official record of the copyright in case you should decide to file a lawsuit for copyright infringement. However, it is not necessary to register for a copyright in order to gain basic
and immediate copyright protection.
