Do I need to register the copyright in my software?

Generally, the answer is NO. Copyrights are automatically protected in Canada and elsewhere. There is an exception, however. If you are contemplating enforcement of your copyright, particularly if you are contemplating suing someone, there is an advantage to registering your copyright.
