Copyright protects the particular way an author has expressed himself; it does not extend to any ideas, systems, or factual information conveyed in the work.
What sort of verbage/additional page are you including in your reports to copywrite them. I would like to start doing this.
Who has the money to bring a copyright case? Who would you bring it against? How would you know?
I do place verbage in my reports. But I think it has cost me more business then it will ever pay back.
Copyright does not protect facts, ideas, systems, or methods of operation, although it may protect the way these things are expressed.
Question: If registration is so important, why does the copyright office show that you have registered a copyright only only one appraisal report?
