Dear Reader,

You’ve lit on a very interesting question—whether to register your work(s) before submitting to a potential publisher on spec. Many publishers won’t even accept unsolicited manuscripts, because of the Copyright issues that can arise. You can go to to get a referral to a lawyer to get legal advice on this issue—this is an area you don’t want to enter into blindly, and LegalZoom can help you connect with an attorney who can help you navigate your way through.

Thanks for your interest,
