In Australia, all written works are considered the property of the
author, registered or not. In fact, there are no registration bodies
in Australia should you wish to make use of one. The easiest way to
proof authorship is to publish it someplace that you can point to
Creative Commons for an Australian is like a specific license under
which one can make use of copyrighted works.
In the U.S. I understand there are registration bodies, but I think it
might also be true that in theory works are automatically covered - it
is possibly worth checking this if you want to be 100% correct for
I don't know about other countries.
| i am just wondering.. do many people out there that are using the
| creative commons licensing have their works as registered
| copyrights? and how does the licensing work with a registered
| work? do they go hand in hand? is creative commons licensing just
| an additional aspect of having the work copywritten? and
| basically how many of you out there have your work officially
| registered with the government? thanks for your help, and i look
| forward to learning more about creative commons thru this group...
