SEAL™ Files instantly protect and redundantly archive your movie screenplays for as little as $2 each! What is a copyright?
"Copyright" literally means the right to copy. The instant you commit your script or screenplay to paper, disc, video or film, you are a proud copyright holder... Congratulations, but now what should you do to protect your copyrights?

According to the US Library of Congress, movie scripts and screenplays and other theatrical works, like plays and monologues are categorized as "Performing Arts". By definition, performing arts are those works that are intended to be “performed” directly before an audience or indirectly “by means of any device or process.”

SEAL™ files allow you to securely date-stamp and redundantly archive your scripts or screenplay's online instantly! Real-time international copyright protection! Learn how

The US Library of Congress defines "Performing Arts" as follows:

Performing Arts

Performing arts works are intended to be “performed” directly before an audience or indirectly “by means of any device or process.”
(1) musical works, including any accompanying words;
(2) dramatic works, such as scripts, including any accompanying music;
(3) pantomimes and choreographic works; and
(4) motion pictures and other audiovisual works.

Why do I need to protect or register the copyrights on my scripts or screenplays?
While you may own your copyright, you may have difficulty proving it. Problems can arise if you are required to provide credible evidence of when you first created your copyrights... In this Internet age, your scripts and screenplays can achieve international exposure, quite literally overnight. The sooner you can produce credible date-stamped evidence for your copyrights, the better off you will be in any copyright infringement action. Read more

No matter what, your SEAL™ file will always credibly represent the earliest moment in history that your TV script or movie screenplay was in your possession...
