Copyright is a legal right that allows an author or creator to protect their work from being used without their permission. Copyright can be applied to any form of creative work, including written articles, music, and artwork.
To protect your copyright, you need to establish that your work is original and was created with the intention of being published. You can do this by registering your copyright with the US Copyright Office, obtaining a copyright registration certificate, or filing a copyright infringement claim.
If you decide to protect your copyright using one of these methods, be sure to include accurate information in your copyright notice and include a link to your website or blog where people can find more information about your work. Additionally, you may want to consider using a Creative Commons license if you want to allow others to share and use your work under specific conditions.
