The Internet means that the works of the newest writer can receive international exposure instantly. It also means that the ownership of your intellectual property is at risk. Do not take chances with your hard work, get an official copyright issued by the Library of Congress and protect your rights. The fee is low. Officially copyright your work today.
The Library of Congress is a resource that anyone involved in publishing should be very familiar with. It has great research facilities and interesting collections available. If you are trying to find that elusive piece of information that is critical to your story line, start looking here.
When the book is published, the publisher includes the CIP data on the copyright page thereby facilitating book processing for libraries and book dealers. The Preassigned Number Control Program allows the publisher to obtain this information before the book is published.
The Bowker Company publishes the definitive list of "Books in Print" and works with The U.S. ISBN Agency who is responsible for the assignment of the ISBN Publisher Prefix to those publishers with a residence or office in the U.S. and are publishing their titles within the U.S.
