Your written manuscript will be worded in a specific sequence. And the succession of those words needs to be protected. No one wants their creative product to be stolen. Copywriting, as a legal term, protects what you composed – keeping someone else from stealing your intellectual property.
Remember, an idea – by itself – cannot be protected. But a sequence of words, such as your manuscript for a book or novel, can be guarded from theft. As an author there are certain steps you can take to keep your content, or manuscript, safe.
