Ah, thank you Rebecca! You're the best!
Our copyright law is a little different then yours. Like I said, the minute something is published in print it's automatically protected by copyright, but I cannot register like with you in the U.S.A. I'm glad I can register in the States though. This way I can have my work registered and my country does acknowledge your copyright laws. I'm happy!

Hm... I do have another question. In the collection I'd like to register there are also 2 co-written poems. I found these instructions on sheet/form FL106:

"Published collections of poetry and all other copyrightable elements of a unit of pub-lication
may be registered on a single form with a single fee if all of the poems are owned
by the same copyright claimant.
Unpublished collections of two or more poems may be submitted for registration on
a single form with a single fee and deposit of one complete copy or phonorecord only if
all of the following conditions are met:
1. The elements are assembled in an orderly form;
2. The combined elements bear a single title identifying the collection as a whole;
3. The copyright claimant in all of the elements and in the collection as a whole is
the same; and
4. All of the elements are by the same author, or, if they are by different authors, at
least one of the authors has contributed copyrightable authorship to each of the
elements.
Registration of an unpublished collection of compositions extends the benefits of reg-istration to each copyrightable selection in the collection, but only the collection title ap-pears in the Copyright Office catalogs and indexes."

Does this mean I may include them in the collection (with permission of the other authors of course) as long as "part" of the poem is written by me?

LOL I'm getting all confused! Thanks for your time and patience though.

I believe that if there are several authors you need to list them as well as co-authors of the collection and you need to complete the long form instead of the short form. What you may want to do is to submit the poems that are strictly your own in one submission and then the collection with the other authors seperately as another submission. That way the other authors won't be down as co-authors of the ones that are strictly done by you, but only as co-authors of the ones that they wrote with you. Do they have a link online where you can ask questions? I don't remember seeing one. I'd offer to call them for you but I'm not home during the day when they are open and I can't make long distance calls from work. Maybe someone else can call for you.
