Protect Your Copyright
In the event of a copyright dispute, proving exactly when copyright was established and by whom can be extremely difficult. It is generally accepted that the best way to establish a verifiable date of creation is to register your work with a third party such as The Script Vault, who can corroborate the registration date and the name of the person who registered the work. Copyright Registration can prove invaluable in the event of copyright theft or plagiarism.
The Script Vault is the only UK Copyright Registration service to be approved by the Writers’ Guild of Great Britain. We’ve been established since 2002 and we offer affordable prices whilst giving you piece of mind that your copyright is protected.
