A copyright protects original creative works like books, photographs, drawings, paintings, plays, etc. Copyright protection is limited to replicas of your work, not just the “idea or concept”. Copyright applications are filed with the Copyright Office and you will need to provide a copy of your work to the Copyright Ofice electronically or by mail showing the creative work you are registering. The copyright registration process takes approximately 6 months, but can take longer depending on the type of work you are registering.
