Do I need a copyright page for my low content book?
When it comes to low content books, the answer is no. Low content books are those that don’t contain enough words to be considered unique from other works. As such, they are not copyrightable. That said, if you wrote the book, you still own the copyright, even if you don’t register it.
Registration of a copyright is only necessary if you ever need to prove in a legal dispute that you wrote something first. Without a registration, it can be difficult to prove that you are the original author of a work.
That said, it is still a good idea to include a copyright page in your low content book. This page should include the title of the book, the author’s name, and the year of publication. It should also include a copyright notice, such as “Copyright © [YOUR NAME] [YEAR OF PUBLICATION], All Rights Reserved.” This will serve as a reminder to readers that the book is protected by copyright law.
It is also important to note that copyright protection lasts for the life of the author plus 70 years. So, even if you don’t register your copyright, it will still be in effect until 8 August 2022.
In conclusion, while you don’t need to register the copyright for your low content book, it is still a good idea to include a copyright page. This page should include the title of the book, the author’s name, the year of publication, and a copyright notice. This will serve as a reminder to readers that the book is protected by copyright law and will remain in effect until 8 August 2022.
