12-Step Screenwriting: Week 9 - WGA Registration vs. U.S. Copyright

It's time for another episode of the Bitter Script Reader YouTube series!

This is the ninth chapter of a 12-part series designed to guide and motivate a writer to complete a screenplay within three months.  Recognizing that I had an opportunity to reach a new audience via YouTube, I decided to start with the basics.

This week's video weighs the merits of registering your script with the Writers Guild of America vs. copyrighting it through the U.S. Copyright office.

For WGA registration, go here.

To register a copyright, go here. "You want the Form PA" PDF.

As always, it really helps me out to see some engagement with these videos, so please click through to the YouTube page, subscribe and leave a few comments there.  Feel free to embed these on your blogs, and if you find the tips useful, tweet about them or put the videos on your Facebook page.
