• All rights (as in copyrights) for art work of any kind, once it is in tangible form (in your case after the play is written), are exclusively owned by the author of the work. This happens by default and no registration is required. To register the copyright of any kind of art work adds a great deal of protection for the artist and provides a measure of proof that the person claiming to be the author of the work is, in fact, the author. The ONLY person or entity who can register the copyright to any work is either the author or someone who can show proof (in writing) they purchased the rights to the work from the author. You can register a copyright for your work online at as well as find all the information you need and the cost for a single title is about $35.
