I'm a new author and have very little experience with the legal side of things. I've seen that a Copyright page is required. How do I obtain the Copyright for my own work?
As that Lulu page states, once you create something in to something tangible (not just in your head in other words) then it's automatically copyrighted by some worldwide agreements. A copyright page is to name you as the copyright holder. (There are example ones on line.) However, some people do register their copyrights as a safeguard. It's particularly recommended in the USA. But do beware that there are 1000s of places on line who will take money off you to Register your copyrights, which have no actual use in law. They are worthless and pointless. This is useful info >> https://www.gov.uk/copyright
Incidentally. There are many Far Eastern countries that turn a blind eye to infringements.
Myself and my friend combined know everything there is to know, but he's not here.
No Hulsey, you are right, that's no longer recommended. What is possible proof nowadays is the time stamps Saves create on PCs, but not always if one keeps editing the file.
That's not proof of ownership Rachel, that's only proof that you posted there and said you had the right to. They never check ... (And neither does Amazon. Or Lulu for that matter.)
That's a very annoying site BTW! When one is trying to scroll down the page looking for a site copyright and disclaimers, etc., it just continues to place in poems down the side!
But I have just looked at a few poems there and there's no sign of a copyright, and all that the open an account, including a poem, fill in page, asks, is Are You A Robot.
