Alright, I have a bunch of questions about copyrights. I just finished an 8 minute short. I want to copyright it so I can submit it to festivals and host it on the internet. The music is original, so no need to worry there. Basically, what is the best way to submit my movie to the library of congress or whatever it is? The way I understand it, even if my movie is copyrighted, my story and characters won’t be. So, is it best to send a copy of my screenplay as well? Also, I went ahead and put the Ã‚Â© symbol in the end credits and All Rights Reserved along with my production name. However, does my production name need to be copyrighted as well? What is the best thing to put next to the Ã‚Â© symbol? Another thing, the music is stuff that I created, so do I need to copyright the music separately as well? I think that should pretty much do it.
Any help and any answers would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, and hopefully I’ll get this hosted online soon, so anyone who wants to can see it. Thanks,
