Logic - According to the US Copyright office website:

"The practice of sending a copy of your own work to yourself is sometimes called a “poor man’s copyright.” There is no provision in the copyright law regarding any such type of protection, and it is not a substitute for registration."


It costs $35 to apply for copyright online and you can group works together as a collection for that price. It's worth having it registered. Especially if you want to be able to sue.

Tausif friend In the US we have Copyrights and laws.
I'm doing major experiments in the area of magnetic physics, and run into this area ALL the time.
In the US I put my information in a SEALED envelope and put my initials
on EVERY seal of it! Then I address it to myself. And mail it and it gets the postage DATE mark, and I never open it.
If open by a judge the information is proved to be mine on that date!
It's called a poor mans Patient.
I hope I helped! If not shout me, because!
