The Revolutionary Copyright Solution


Hiya. My name is Norm. Im an author, writer and musician. Ive discovered a way that you can copyright your creations online, instantly, with the click of a PC mouse or a tap on an iPhone screen... Me? I got one piece of copyright material ripped off. They reckon it cost me about $225,000 US. Big deal. Not YOUR problem, right? Hey - if youre a creative person, it IS your problem look at this: In a CNN Report broadcast in late 2011, it was revealed that... Copyright Theft in the USA alone is now running into $250,000,000,000 annually. (All those 000s mean $250 billion, by the way. Arithmetic was never my strong point.) Extrapolate that figure to include the rest of the world, and youre looking at $1.25 trillion. Hmmm... $1,250,000,000,000... Hard to figure? Well, that equates to about $40,000 of every second of every day, 365 days a year - a LOT. Then I found a report commissioned by the giant broadcaster, NBC, that made my jaw drop - it hit the spacebar on my keyboard............ and....... made........... big............. gaps........... like............. this. You can find the report online: theyve now discovered An estimated 23.8% of ALL Internet Traffic infringes copyright. In other words, nearly a quarter of all Internet content is ripping off somebodys work - yours and mine. 1 |

Staggering numbers! Just in case youre interested, heres my story... Back in 95, I had written a little Country Rock song, called A Country Mile. Id responded to an ad Id seen in whats called a Tip sheet, where record labels, producers or directors can place kind-of Wanted ads for songs. (This was in the 90s, when use of the Internet for this kind of thing wasnt common.) This one was an ad for upbeat, country-rock tunes with a humorous theme, specifically for the then-popular Line Dance craze. My little song fitted the bill, as the tagline was I can smell bull from A Country Mile. So I ever-optimistically sent it off to the label in Nashville. (This was my Homer Simpson moment. DOH!)

The Sting
About 3 months later, I received a contract through the mail, offering to record the actual demo recording itself. I had my lawyer check it out - it was all cool, kosher and hunky dory - so I signed and sent it back.

About 6 months later, I received my first royalty check. $68. Didnt exactly wow me, I have to tell you. You didnt hear me shouting Yee-HARR! But, they assured me, there would be more to come. There wasnt. Not a cent. Nothing. Nada. Zilch. Diddley squat. Zero. Yee-harr... Now, remember this was in 1995? Well, in 2006, (!) I got an eMail from a friend in Scotland. (My home stomping ground. I was in Spain at the time.) I had worked with John in a trio, playing pop & rock stuff in the early 80s. John contacted me to say that he had bought a CD in a supermarket and noticed my credit on the label as the songwriter. Asked if it was the same Norm MacLeod. Now, after 11 years, I was intrigued: so I asked which label it was. It was a label Id never heard of - and based in the UK, not the States! Long story short: we found that the song had been recorded on at least 6 different CDs which had been selling well in Country Music clubs and circles and in those supermarket Bargain Bins - for at least 10 years. I got legal advice, and to cut another long story even shorter, I ended up with $68 and an embarrassingly small settlement after the legal bills. I had been stung! In my case, proof of copyright was a problem. Stupidly, Id used whats sometimes referred to as Poor Mans Copyright which, in my court case, was 3 |

thrown out just about as fast as you throw your junk mail in the trash can. (BTW, did you know that the sign no longer means anything? Just thought you should know...) As youll guess, having lost enough dough to have paid off my mortgage, I became just a teensy, weensy, wee bit obsessed with copyright after that, and when I became a regular Internet user, I saw the dangers of how simple it is to just rightclick, then copy text, music, photos, designs, images, virtually ANYTHING from a website and steal it... I mean, its SO easy - anyone might be tempted.

An Epiphany By Skype
Then one day, I was talking to a friend in Sacramento, California, on Skype. (Again, I was in Spain at the time.) We were jawing for ages, and the subject of copyright theft came up: she had had a load of coaching materials lifted after a convention, where she had revealed a web resource to the attendees. Some @#?!#&%## had not only boosted her years of work, but was actually selling her work online as an eBook. Then I told her my tale of woe... you know how it goes. Anyway, after we exchanged virtual kisses and hugs, I 4 |

hung up and it suddenly struck me Skype, Vonage, iTalk, GoogleChat, all of these VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) phone lines use encrypted, coded security to let us talk over the Internet and NOT be hacked into: I thought, Why cant I copyright my stuff in a similar way? Well, as I said, obsessed I had become. I was like a copyright stalker - stalking my own copyrights, following them around all day and all night, watching from the shadows, monitoring their phone calls... (okay, Im getting carried away here.) So I started talking to some of those clever, webhead people who work out long lines of code on computers - and actually enjoy it!!! It took the best part of two years, but we perfected a way of creating copyright online, using encrypted data, kinda like VoIP - in fact, its so similar in concept, we decided to call it CoIP - short for Copyright over Internet Protocol*. (*USA/World Patent Pending.)

So What Good Is That To YOU?


Theres a lot of confusion about copyright and how you copyright your stuff correctly, so let me take a minute of your time to clear something up really quickly... First, are you a citizen of, or do you live in, one of these countries? Next page... >>> 5 |

continuously updated ever since, to include recording copyrights on everything from wax drums, to tape, to vinyl, to your PC, Mac, iPhone or on your Blackberry. So Switzerland, home of The Berne Convention, is the natural home of your copyrights, no matter where you are. Now, if youre reading this in the USA or Canada, youre going to be thinking, Whoa, back up - weve already got a Copyright Office... El correcto! But understand this: The Berne Convention establishes copyright as a natural, human right that you, as an author, are entitled to in 164 countries simultaneously. But Im not an author!

Heres How You Prove Your Copyright

Got one of these? You CAN prove it


This brings us neatly back to the US and Canadian Copyright offices. USA/Canada copyrights comply with Article 2:2 of The Berne Convention by issuing a dated, paper certificate, effectively witnessed by the copyright office with a registration number, that you can wave victoriously in the air when your stuff gets ripped off. (Remember Yee-HARR! ???) 8 |

But get this: YOU can comply with Article 2:2 by producing your OWN paper certificate. And how would it be if that certificate was not only dated, but time-stamped to the exact SECOND of copyright? AND witnessed by a credible Third Party ? AND created with just a click of a mouse on your PC or Mac, or a tap on your iPhone, Tablet or Blackberry? Guess what? You ALREADY have that facility, right in front of you, right now, staring you in the face. Take a peek inside the machine youre reading these words on...
