There seems to be some controversy over copywriting. At first I thought I should before submitting any work. After research I found that once you pen, the work is yours. Proving it may be different. I read where publishers may take offense it you copywrite first then send a submission. They think you do not trust them and may be a problem down the road. Another point is, once the rewrite is finished and the final edit is finished the work will not be the same as when first copywrited. To try and satisfy both sides I do what's called a poor man's copywrite, mail it to myself keeping the envelope sealed and dated.
The subject was brought up, "Your Fired" as a point in favor of copywriting. The infringement had to be very, very close for any kind of lawsuit. The way I understand it, you can not copywrite words, only the idea or how the words are used. Such as a book or a song etc. Think about it. We wouldn't have but one book, The Bible, and one song, The Walbash Cannonball.
Who is right
