The main issue with Copyright is that it is not self-declared. The creator should obtain evidence of possession, in order to claim his rights.

COPYRIGHTSWORLD ™ protects your intellectual creations and proves unambiguously that the work was in your possession at a particular date and time in the past.

COPYRIGHTSWORLD ™ is the ultimate online registry service for Intellectual Property (Intellectual Property Registry). With the use of block-chain based technology along with timestamp and encryption, achieves the goal to secure your intellectual property.
The challenge is to prove that the work was in your possession in a specific day and time in the past. The testimony should be formal and unequivocal. Thus, if there is no earlier evidence of possession coming from another aspirant, automatically is assumed that you are the creator and owner of the work.

CopyrightsWorld ™ protects you comprehensively and unambiguously.

What type of works does CopyrightsWorld currently support?
We currently support almost all kinds of creations. Ask for details.
Can't I just do the -Poor man's copyright- process?
After so many years this myth being around, nowdays this is kind of a joke. The truth is, we don’t want you to be in the unfortunate situation where your proof of ownership collapses in front of the count of law, in like a second, when you thought you were secured.
Can't I just go to a Notary?
The notary is always a good complementary option, but it is clearly much more expensive and does not provide you with the triple security that CopyrightsWorld does.
I am from the USA, am I protected ?
Yes. USA has signed the Berne Convention since 1989, so the same laws apply. You are globally protected and you can publicly declare that protection. You will only need to register your work with the Library of Congress, if you are a US citizen and you wish to obtain statutory damages in case of infringement within the US.
What is the -Certification of submission- ?
The “Certification of Submission” is the badge by which the public identifies that your work is protected by CopyrightsWorld ™. With each submission you receive and it’s “Certification of submission” (the code), which can be included on any public display of your work. By clicking on the badge, the visitor/reader will be informed through CopyrightsWorld of the submission of your property in detail (eg date, number, etc.).

When should I expect my Submission Certificates?
Every 24 hours, a chain sync accours. When the chain sync is completed, the “Certificate generator” is triggered. Immutable Certificates of Ownership (CoO) are automatically being generated and emailed to every user that had submitted at least one creation within that “chain-link” session. That Certificate of Ownership includes all the details and data produced by the sync process.

This certificate, that links everything together, is your ultimate evidence of possession for your creations!
Am I getting hardcopies of my -Submission Certificates- ?
As announced on February 27th 2013, we are going ECO all the way.
So no.
” We are serious about applying the European Directive on Eco friendly companies. We really care about the environment, so starting in 2013 we will do our best to minimize our gas and paper usage.
As a result, we will be using our bicycles for everyday move in the city and we will be offering digital only certificates. Of course these certificates have the same value as the printed ones we did offer, except you can create and use them on demand. It’s a win-win-win! “
