It's been a while. Life's been pretty busy as I'm still preparing to move and making sure everything is in order. It's been both stressful and exciting and I want it to be over to be honest : P. I keep hoping money won't be an issue, and that perhaps I can finally find some official work in the industry.
Aside of that life's rather unchanging. Doing some commission work, and in free time I continue to polish up my next copyright registration.
And while we're on subject. If I contacted you recently about storing some of artwork you've done for me (my creatures) feel free to put it back up.
(Some of you have asked me about copyrights before so I hope this may be of help.)
After a long time of being told (and reading official info) that you can't publish your work prior to copyright I finally decided to write the copyright office and get the final answer. (Maybe you know this but if you don't it might be useful info)
When I filed my first copyright registration there was a mention on this too.
Here's what I got in reply.
The definition of "publication" in the U. S. copyright law does not specifically address online transmission. In the current copyright law, "publication" is defined as "the distribution of copies or phonorecords of a work to the public by sale or other transfer of ownership, or by rental, lease, or lending. The offering to distribute copies or phonorecords to a group of persons for purposes of further distribution, public performance, or public display, constitutes publication. A public performance or display of a work does not of itself constitute publication" (17 USC sec. 101)."
Have a good one : )
