PUBLISHERS’ DESK simultaneously acts to promote and protect its authors’ works.
Although the Berne Agreement on international copyrights (and, by consequence, the legislation on its more than 170 signatory countries) do not demand so, we recommend that all authors have their works properly registered. We recommend the Works Copyright portal – www.workscopyright.com (all countries) or the Copyright Office – www.copyright.gov (U.S. only).
In order to provide even greater protection, all main operations related to PUBLISHERS’ DESK’s authors’ works are logged and kept by the portal.
