Copyright Service Makes It Easy to Protect Your Photos, Music, Text and Software

Creators of original works have long asked "How can one prove & protect the copyright on text, pictures, music, artwork and more?"

A web based service from helps both companies and individuals do just that.

In all of Europe, Australia and the US, copyright exists the moment something original is made, the problem arises when the original authors work is infringed and the author has to prove that copyright originated with him.

That problem has been solved by the team behind ProveMyCopyright offers independent, third-party verification of claims of copyright.

Creators of original copyrightable material such as text, photographs, music, software code, manuscripts etc. upload material to their account and digitally fingerprints and timestamps it. A digital certificate verifying the claim of copyright can then be used as independent evidence if copyright ownership is challenged. This established principle of copyright is used in over 160 countries.

Unique benefits include:

A 1Gb account that allows uploading of drafts so allowing instant protection.

An account lifetime which registers copyright for a minimum of 11 years.

Secure remote hosting of files in case of damage to a local computer.

Instant notification of copyright registration.

Free retrieval of material.

The service is currently available in 5 currencies, GBP, USD, EUR, AUD and SEK.
