Good afternoon.

I am a newbie in literary copyright matters. I have only just registered a literary work in my country. I dream that it is already protected worldwide… or is it?

I would like to go straight to international publishing, for instance, Amazon. What is the best copyright register tool I can use?

And what about small sections of the original work? I mean, if I want to publish them separately, do I have to register them separately too?

Further: what happens with every translated work or bits of it?

Opinions welcome!
