AuthorMe posts copyright indicia whenever the submitting author provides this. We never claim to own the works we list. However, we do our best to protect them
In the absence of copyright indicia, AuthorMe.com does have an all-site copyright notice whose intent is to protect contributors from rip-offs. The AuthorMe copyright relates primarily to the website itself.
Actually, the author's protection lies in the strength of the new copyright
laws. As we understand it, these laws protect the author from the moment she or
he creates the work. The need to register a work seems to relate to certain
efficiencies in pursuing a claim against a violator.
There is a high ethic in publishing and editing, and rip-offs of an author's work are rare. So this appears not to be a problem.
