I just noticed that a website (a .org) site has copied my entire article and taken credit for it by saying it was written by the administrator. I wrote them an email saying that they have copied my article without my permission and that they need to remove the article or direct their readers to my site. I was wondering thou, since I have yet not copyrighted my article legally, if I need to do anything more. I will also greatly appreciate any advise on how to go about copyrighting my article. Thanks alot. Prabhudesai.

Otherwise, follow the advise provided in other threads here, or follow the advice given on the Copyscape site, or try search engines for other information or advice. Regarding registering your copyright, the government of your country of origin should have information on how to apply for registration. The American Copyright Office, for instance, would not be the same as the Indian Copyright Office. Eliz.

Tell me one thing if I can get myself registered with the copyright website. Then what benefits will I receive from that. Would I be able to copyright the contents of the website?

Lodging a copy of the article or web page with your solicitor or other notary that is timestamped should be as good as it can get. If your site has been around for a while you may find the pages on the WayBack Machine.
But hey, copyright is a joke and it's only the companies with something to lose that steer clear. Although the advertising and entertainment industries would be lost if they couldn't plagiarize.
