    From mammamaia: "anyone anywhere can register and archive their work with wga... stage plays, song lyrics, poetry and books are usually registered with the NY branch and tv/film scripts with the LA one, as those are the respective hubs of the publishing/entertainment universes... it's a bit cheaper and much quicker/easier than [US Copyright Office] but doesn't last as long... "


    Please Pm any useful links you'd like to see here to myself or any other mod.
