There is no system in the UK for registering a copyright. The usual method used to prove a work existed by a given date is for a copy of the manuscript to be sent by the creator, by recorded post, to themselves. The envelope is kept unopened and the postmark used to indicate that the work existed by that date. Alternatively, a copy of the manuscript may be lodged with a bank or a solicitor or with Stationers Hall Registry.
