I've signed my artwork with a pen name since I was eight. I am currently in the process of writing a book series that I planned to use same pen name with. However, I never registered my pen name to my real name. If I register it now, how much would it cost and would all of my previous works automatically be copywrited to me? I have a fb page and art account under the pen name as well.JA: It's only $5 . What written documentation do you have?Customer: I have nearly a hundred drawings and a written in a file on my computer. I've never shown book elsewhere. I have no legal paperwork that says they belong to me.JA: Have you talked to a local attorney? Has anything been filed in court?Customer: No. I decided to look online to see how to make sure it would be mine in case I wish to publish.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: I think that's all I'd like to know.
