I’m curious (sorta like squirrels are) and I would like to know how many of you go to your countries copy right office and register each book you write? I ask as I am involved in a copyright nightmare that just doesn’t end. My screenplays were copyrighted by me through the USA copyright office.
For those of you who don’t know, our book, Suzy Has A Secret was published in March of 2016. In September of 2017 another author published the same kind of book, Same title (we have no problem with that), same topic (we have no problem with that) they used much of our wordage for their book. It has become a nightmare over the last few days. Amazon has suppressed both softcover and KDP did the same. Due to this issue, a few weeks ago I reported them to Amazon for violation of our content published a year and a half before they published theirs.
I don’t know what is going to happen now, but I did just now copyright four books this evening with the USA copyright office. I’m so tired of the other party doing this to me – out of malice. The four books I submitted for copyright this evening are When Angels Fly, Suzy Has A Secret, The Big Cheese Festival, and Shadow and Friends Celebrate Ellsworth, KS 150th Birthday.
Was I just too late in doing this???? I am despondent over this issue. I need feedback please. Thank you.
