Do I need to get copyright on intellectual property? I have

Resolved Question:

Do I need to get copyright on intellectual property? I have developed forms, etc.. Are they automatically protected under copyright law because I have them committed to paper?

Once you introduce the forms into interstate commerce they have informal copyright protection. You can formally register the copyright online at the following link: http://www.copyright.gov/forms/

May I use the copyright symbol without formally registering the property?
