In view of the Guild’s mission to aid dramatists in protecting both the artistic and economic integrity of their work, we are excited to announce the first ever DG Copyright Registration Drive. Why register your copyright? We believe that one of the best ways to protect your work throughout its lifetime is to register your copyright. When your work is registered, you have control over how it is used.
Furthermore, if someone infringes upon your registered copyrighted work, you get full protection -- including the right to statutory damages and an attorney’s fees -- when you take them to small claims court and win your case.
The good news is that the copyright registration process is fairly straightforward, so you don’t need a lawyer to do it for you. You can register your copyright yourself!
