How to Protect Copyright?
According to Berne Convention for the Protection of Literary and Artistic Works, the authors any Member States, or the author of his or her work for the first time, shall be protected in the other Member States. That is to say, copyrights are protected automatically in the member states of Berne Convention once they are created, however the intensity of protection is limited.
To record your copyrights before any copyright offices in some countries as copyright records may be requested for use in legal proceedings. The registration certificates or any certifications issued by the copyright offices will show the true owner of the copyright and the creation time of it.
Obtaining a certified or notarized copy for your copyright, proving that this work belongs to you. The people's court shall acknowledge the legal acts or documents that have been notarized through legal procedure. In most jurisdictions, notarization plays a vital role in intellectual property protection. The creators should notarize their works as early as possible to protect their legitimate rights.

How to avoid copyright infringement?
A registration shall be made as soon as possible in order to secure the opportunity for valuable remedies and litigation advantages available for timely registration under the Copyright Act.
A registration made before or within five years of publication of the work provides a presumption of the validity of the copyright and the facts stated within the registration certificate.
Don't take anything from the Internet, or anywhere else, because it is almost always copyrighted by default.
Make your work creative. Do not copy others.

What is a copyright?
A copyright protects original works of authorship including literary, dramatic, musical, and artistic works, such as poetry, novels, movies, songs, computer software, and architecture.  The duration of copyright protection depends on several factors.
How much does it cost to apply for a copyright?
The two main costs involved in a copyright application would be the official filing fees and your agent's fees (if you engage one). The total cost varies from case to case depending on the approach you take and the complexity of the case. C&H offer the most competitive fees with efficient service.
Who can apply for a copyright?
Only the author of an original work or someone who has obtained rights from the author can register a copyright.
What if someone else is using my copyright?
First, you should determine if your work that has been copied is protected by copyright law. Next, you should determine whether you actually own the rights to the work. Even though the person has used your work, they might have a successful fair use defense. This means that their use of your work is not illegal.
