If you use a subtitle in your book, how do you protect both the title and subtitle via copyright.
For example, if I have a book entitled "Superhero Avengers: Rage Against the Copier Machine", if I included the entire phrase as the title, would that not protect the "Superhero Avengers"? Likewise, if I make the title just "Superhero Avengers", does that mean that anyone can copy my "Rage Against the Copier Machine" subtitle?
I've never used a subtitle before, and I'm a bit confused. But then again, I've never been sure how series titles are protected either, since the various Indie publishing agencies (Amazon, CS, smashwords, Lulu and Bowker) don't seem to flag, or in some cases, even record that information.
