Does an artist need to file for Copyright Protection or is it Automatic?

IT IS AUTOMATIC by law since January 1, 1978. No registration is required.

Although, there is such thing as filing for a copyright protection. You can fill out a form, attach photographs of your artworks and a money order and mail it to a proper agency. You can hire a layer to help you with it. It will cost you between $25 and few hundred dollars. Will that help you feel secure with your work been out there? That is for you to decide. Will that help you to defend your rights in court? They say - it is helpful.
