In this day and age of the internet, the world is a very small place, and work can be copied easily. Your work must be officially copyrighted to deter plagiarism, and to prove you are the original creator/author in the event that someone accuses you of copying their work, or when somebody copies your work.
A Look at Copyright Infringement
Copyright issues vary. For authors, it’s a blow when others unlawfully share their works. This act lets the author go to court, demanding the work’s removal. Plus, they can ask for damages and any earned profit by the wrongdoer.
