Script Registration Services

Script registration offers writers peace of mind when submitting material, but should not be confused with copyright, the laws around which are not universal. Registration proves your script was written on a certain date should a program that closely resembles your work be produced by a third party and you wish to take legal action (it is important to note that ideas alone cannot be registered). Because the rules around evidence vary, registering your script in the jurisdiction(s) where you intend to submit it is the best way to ensure your material will be recognized as valid evidence should a dispute arise. The following are links to IAWG member script registration services.
