email it to yourself and save the email. It will date/time stamp it
That doesn't works,it only prooves you were the first sending it but doesn't prooves you actually created that stuff.
I copyrighted all my stuff according to USA laws which is globally.
Through its site you just have to upload your song(s),books,poems whatever and pay for each one,if I can remember I payed 20 dollars for each song.
After 2 months I received(by mail) a letter saying all those songs I sent were worldwide protected and I could put that copyrighted figure on my cds.
Again= sending your stuff to yourself will only proove you send it it first ,example= your friend created a song,YOU burned a cd and sent to yourself.
See you didn't created that song,you just were the first sending it.
If somebody copy your song no jury would accept your letter as a proove that you were its creator.
USA Copyright FAQ = I’ve heard about a “poor man’s copyright.” What is it?
The practice of sending a copy of your own work to yourself is sometimes called a “poor man’s copyright.” There is no provision in the copyright law regarding any such type of protection, and it is not a substitute for registration.
Take a look in their site for further info = http://www.copyright.gov/help/faq/
