Q.  What are the Copyright Laws for using a poem?
A.   Poems are copyright protected just like books, images or other intellectual property.  Whether it’s intended or not, infringement of copyright for a collection of poems or a single poem can bring you civil court action.

Q.  Does every poem I write have to be copyrighted?
A.  Poems are automatically copyright protected the moment they are written in a tangible form, which means writing them down on paper, saving them on a computer or in any word processing program. 

Q.  When does copyright infringement occur?
A.  Copyright infringement occurs when a 3rd party uses any poem(s) in an unauthorized manner such as republishing any of my poems without my permission.
