Question from a Comic Book Creator...

← Return to forum

  • is it better to copyright individual characters that appear in my stories or should I just copyright the book/volume that the character appears in?
  • Nonlawyerly thoughts. ^_^

    In the US, once something is created in fixed form, it's copyrighted without you needing to do anything.

    If you're referring to registering copyright, you can't register your characters per se- you'd need to register a drawing of your characters, or something else in tangible form. It would probably be easier to register the volume.
  • Thanks a lot, cjovalle. That question was really bugging for some time now.
