How to Copyright a Book for Free

Compose your book in a tangible, perceptible form. This means that you will have to write the book on a computer or on paper, or create a sound recording of it.

Make at least three copies of the book. Place at least one of those copies in a secure area, such as a safety deposit box or a safe.

Send copies of the book to at least one trusted friend or family member. It's a good idea to send the work to someone else in case your own copies get misplaced or lost.
