Copyrights on an original work exists as soon as an original work is fixed to a tangible medium. An original work can be a written play, software code, a recorded song, a book, an article, or written music. However, the copyright must be put into a tangible medium. Even though an original work is considered to have copyrights once it is fixed to a tangible medium, a lawsuit based upon copyright infringement can only be brought if a work is registered with the U.S. Copyright Office.
Copyright Law is based upon Federal statutes and the case law derived therefrom. A lawsuit based upon copyright law can only be brought and litigated in Federal Court.
