Munawar, I did a search for copyright office britain on Google and found the following info. The Patent Office for the U.K. mentions that all copyright is automatic and that copyright registration is not necessary. It says there are copyright registers where someone can register their copyright, but questions whether or not any fee is worth the effort. The following website may be able to help, though. http://tyler.hrc.utexas.edu/uk.cfm This site has a WATCH file which may contain the information, and the web page contains info on how to go about finding a U.K. copyright holder. There were some other sites in the results which I didn't check, so you may want to run the search yourself and check them out.

There is only a note: "All rights reserved in the name of the author." The publication information is there, however. This book was published in England -- how would I go about getting the copyright info for this title? I do not think the US copyright office would serve a purpose for a book written in England. Thanks for any help. Munawar A.
