Copyright and registration

Filed under: For your pleasure — BJ @ 11:57 pm

Yesterday, I finally made the leap. The one to let go of the material you’ve been working on and thinking about everyday for the past seven months because if you want to make it, sooner or later, you’re going to have to.

Thus, the first, my first screenplay was finalized via copyright and registration.

On the copyright website, under type of work, screenplays fall under “Work of the Performing Arts.” There’s a certain sense of prestige attached to “performing arts.” But, I guess that’s on top of doing any work that requires being on the website to begin with.

Anyone want to write some songs with me?

On the contrary, the Writers Guild of America, or WGA, has a very simple registration for a site that takes in tens of thousands of new screenplays every year. Almost a little too simple. Two clicks from its home page, and you’re on the single-page registration form.

Here’s the website if anyone’s interested: https://www.wgawregistry.org/webrss/dataentry.asp

It’s a great feeling, but there’s a greater feeling. And, another journey begins in the quest to taste it.
