How do you copyright a comic strip?


Answer by  tedros (211)

In the United States, you automatically have copyright for anything that you draw or write. Additionally, you can register your comic with the United States Copyright Office. For more information visit .

To copyright artwork a copy of the work must be sent to the copyright office. Copies must be mailed with appropriate fees and paperwork. It is important to copyright the series(or characters) and not simple the one comic that you sent. Copyrights are usually given to the creator of the artwork but can also be hel by the artists employer.

Register with the Copyright Office. They provide important additional rights then just copyright. remember a comic strip is considered a "visual art" by the Copyright Office.

Other than going through the offices for Copyright, you can also put all your art, scripts, etc. into an envelope and mail it to yourself, then not open it.

It depends on where you are. If you are in the U. S. any artwork or writing is considered the property of whomever created it unless contracts are signed giving another person, corporation, etc custody of it. The best thing to do would be to check with the copyright office in whatever country you reside.
