If you have a website the day is going to come when you want to register your website with the US Copyright Office. Visit the copyright office website here: http://copyright.gov/.
You will have to pay a copyright registration fee of $45 to register your website. Along with your registration fee you’ll snail mail the Copyrights Office a copy of your website content on a cd. Any new works that you generate are automatically protected under the copyright law.
In a couple of weeks you’ll receive a notice and a copyright registration number once they receive your information.
You can search through the database to see your copyright information here: http://cocatalog.loc.gov/cgi-bin/Pwebrecon.cgi?DB=local&PAGE=First
As an example, Hoover Web Design’s web site’s copyright number is TXu001068140.
Getting a copyright for your website will come in handy if you ever have to sue any body for stealing your own original content.
