So you don't need to pay any money to copyright a website or blog right? I think it is important to pay the money to get a logo copyrighted once your website or blog becomes a big thing. However, if it is just small, you probably don't have to worry.
Yeah ! We can either trademark or copyright the logo ! 😉
To copyright the contents of the blog or the original authorship (includes articles, photos, etc) through U.S. Copyright Office we have to pay some money ! 🙁
For registering online it costs $35 and $45 if you register using a paper application.
Thanks for this info… it is new for me that you can get copyrighted your blog posts as well…. is it so?
