Good afternoon.

I've just finished writing a novel, and sent out the initial queries to the agents and publishers. Now before (and if) they ask for the complete manuscript for evaluation, I'd like to secure the entire work under the copyright laws, so as to prevent plagiarism, and duplication of my intellectual work.

As I'm naive to legality, I'd like to ask you how to initiate this procedure. Should I head to the local court and contact a lawyer?

Any help is highly appreciated.

Thanks and regards,
Soumyadeep Koley.

Thank you so much for your reply, Ms. Kirmani. I've sent two chapters as a sample, along with the query. Do you think I can still file a copyright?

I never knew there exists a copyright law for unpublished works. I came to know about it while browsing through this informative forum. Otherwise, I'd have secured the copyright before venturing to send the queries out to agents and publishers. My bad. Can I still secure a copyright? How long does it generally take to get the copyright certificate?

Thank you.

Thank you for the information, Ms. Mukherjee. Do you think I can still file a copyright in this case, when I've already sent out a few chapters as a sample, to the agents and publishers?
