    We used to send a copy "recorded delivery" to ourselves and never open it. It proves when it was written and it dated.

    We never got rich but it was a cheap way of doing it.

    That's not a reliable form of copyright unfortunately as there is no independent evidence that the contents of the envelope have not been tampered with or exchanged, even if sent recorded delivery. It's not recommended as a means of copyrighting materials.

    You should find all the information you need at
    The UK Copyright Service - Intellectual property registration centre

    This is going back many moons ago - if I recall correctly, the post office would use sealing wax.

    Did anyone else hear of this before. I might be going mad:p

    LOL, showing your age there!! What time did the postman turn up on his horse in those days? I bet a penny black was a huge sum of money.
