Hi, I live outside the USA, and i have some idea of how to copyright things, but since i´m still making my first game with Unreal, to sell it at Steam, and i want to think it will be a succes LOL… i wonder if there is suggestions about how to copyright a game, i wonder if you guys have links that you can share with information, process, best prices, i belive even do im not from USA i still can register characters and games there but what happens to the rest of the world, copyright in the USA Will replicate to wich countires? wich steps have worked for you in the past, how long this process takes, how long games and characters are protected, do you copyright each character, group, or the entire game at once and how you prepear the specimen(docs), samples, images (specially since a game its different from a rendered image), do you have to render scenes from the game?
I have read that today you can actually publish any content without first having to Copyright, the first to publish content remains the rights; even the symbols of copyright might not be required anymore, but how safe is that, and how long it protects you? I belive sharing steps and opinions will help a lot of users, beginers and maybe even more advanced developers in our journeys,
Please share, thanks
