Protect My Work or THE poor man's copyright?
WE’RE HERE TO HELP YOU

With the worldwide use of websites, giving people access to everything from photos to music to designs, it is not surprising that copyright breaches are becoming more widespread. In response to these violations, some lawyers have suggested a 'simple' solution to protecting your work and propose that posting yourself a copy of the work, also called the 'poor man's copyright', provides enough proof of the original author.

However, how does someone print and post a song or piece of music, or the entire code for a web site? If stored hard copies are an author's only proof of ownership, what happens if the documents are misplaced or damaged? Many designers, artists and writers find themselves with many pieces of design work each month. Are they to be posted and stored indefinitely? 10 years? 20 years? 50 years?

Copyright law across the world, states that you must prove you are the original author of a piece of work. Should anyone copy your intellectual property you will have to prove in court that you are the original author and the ideas of the work are original. The easiest way to do this is to keep draft versions of the work. A court can then see the different development stages of the work and be sure the work was original. The 'poor man's' copyright system could prove to be difficult for a writer who has to continuously post themselves draft versions of their book and then find somewhere to store them!

WHAT WILL PROTECT MY WORK DO IF MY WORK IS COPIED?

If your work is used without permission and registered with us, we can provide you with valuable evidence should your case go to court. Protect My Work will provide you with an affidavit. An affidavit is a written, sworn statement that is acknowledged and endorsed in front of a Notary Public. An affidavit may be used in place of oral testimony in court.

Proof of authorship using the Internet helps avoid printing reams of paper (environmentally friendly!) and is more time efficient. If we were to print and post each design and intellectual property item to ourselves we would be spending too much time, and energy on printing, purchasing stamps, stuffing envelopes and then trying to find somewhere to store all these sealed envelopes!
