    Hi guys.
    I've completed a software in JAVA which is able to crack the password of a protected PDF file using Brute Force and Dictionary attack.
    Now I want to launch that software on internet for general public with its official website. It'll be a freeware.
    However, I'm totally unaware with the Licencing and Copyright procedure involved while launching a software.
    Need guidance regarding the procedure and $$$ charges involved in it.

    Thanks in advance.

    Jokers,

    I'm not real familiar with copyrighting for software however I believe the administrative fees for filing a copyright claim are not that much. To register a copyright on a software program you must register it with the U.S. copyright office.

    Here is some more info on exactly what to do,

    Hope that helps,
