Copyright applies to anything created - the trick of it is proving copyright.

For authors, the age-old technique was to plop a copy of their manuscript into the mail, addressed to themselves.  The package was kept sealed until needed by a court, and the postmark served as the time stamp.

Nowadays, a writer can publish to the internet and the time & date on the story's page serve as the "first published" date.

. . . . but . . . .

. . . lots of the sites that offer such hosting come with horrible terms of service (I understand hosting costs money, but the above terms are simply ridiculous [bluntly, a lot of these places will use these terms to publish your work and you won't see a penny of any profits {and depending on the verbiage, you may have lost ownership of your own work}])


I have set up a "writers refuge" where amateur writers can host their content for the purposes of establishing "first publishing" date (and for sharing with others) without any draconian terms of service.

Find it:



A surprise double feature!

(the site offers them "newest first", so make sure you're reading them in the correct order)
