8. Does mailing my work to myself protect my copyright?

No. Although this myth has persisted for years, mailing your work to yourself, whether by registered mail or any other “authorized” or “certified” method, does not protect your copyright in any way. Registering your work with the U.S. Copyright Office protects your work.
