Copyright is a legal concept, enacted and recognized by most governments, giving exclusive rights to the creator of an original work, usually for a limited time. The term itself generally means "the right to copy," but also gives the copyright holder rights to be credited for the work, to determine who may adapt the work to other forms, who may perform the work, who may financially benefit from it, and other related rights.
While no creative work is automatically protected worldwide, there are international treaties that provide protection automatically for all creative works as soon as they are fixed in a medium. There are two primary international copyright agreements: the Berne Convention for the Protection of Literary and Artistic Works and the Buenos Aires Convention.
You, as the creator, are both the copyright holder and publisher of all works created and distributed using the tools and services available on the Lulu.com website. Therefore, when creating your work's copyright page, you should list yourself as the copyright holder and publisher. If you wish, you may list Lulu as the distributor.
