Note: I am not an attorney. The following are generalizations only based on my study of copyright law and are not meant to be construed as legal advice. If you have a question, consult a competent attorney specializing in copyrights and intellectual property law.
Even though some authors do not register their commercially-published works (primarily because the publisher assumes this task), the self-publisher is highly advised to do so. Two copies of the work are required in the application package.
