Copyright is an exclusive right held by the authors of “original works” that includes the literary, dramatic, musical, artistic, and certain other intellectual creations.

The laws for the registration for copyrights are different in different countries.Some countries offer registrations for copyright while some countries do not offer such registrations.

You can copyright a work that you have done by filling out the application available on the office's website of particular country and pay some fees. Once you finish with all the formalities, your work will be registered.

or is it sufficient just to put the trademark at the end of tagline? Example:
