Wow, copyright is a jungle.... I've been looking into it the last hour now, and it seems that copyright is not the same in every country. So I guess, since I'm a Danish citizen, I'll have to follow the Danish rules??? Or what? Because Denmark is part of the EU and it seems they have some differnt rules!!
And what if I get an American agent and get published in America? What then? Which rules to follow??? Like I said - a jungle!
But, I don't have an agent yet, and I'm not published yet either, so I guess I don't have to worry about that just yet. Or do I? Because I have already published the title of the first two books here on this blog and since I don't have a copyright... well I guess anyone can just take it if they want... So, how do you copyright just the title?? Darn it! What to do?
If you have any ideas, please let me know.

So, did all of you have a scary halloween?
I went to see Paranormal Activity 1 and 2 not long ago, and I'm telling you, I got scared!!! I have never seen - and never will see - scary movies like that again! I got so scared I actually screamed in the theather a one point.

And how are things going with Magical World? Well, chapter four is halfway done and I'm hoping to finish it during next week.

I finished Chris Marie Green's Vampire Babylon series today. Amazing books. I hope to become just as good a write. Chris is my heroine :-)
I'm starting to read another series tonight: The Gardella Vampire Chronicles by Colleen Gleason. I'm real excited about getting started on that series. It sounds great. I'll let you know if I like it :-)

Till next time

  1. The length of copyright depends on the country of course. That means the copyright expires at different times in different countries. So in one country it might last 75 years and then anyone in that country can start copying it. In others it might be 125 years before people in that country can freely copy it. So it doesn't matter where the author is from.

    Now some places require that you have a copyright statement in whatever you publish, while in others it is automatic simply because you are the author.

    I don't think you can copyright the title by itself. That seems unlikely. A title might be able to be trademarked, but that's quite different and can require registration and maintenance. Probably not useful for a book title anyhow.
