This is not an exhaustive list of what can be copyrighted, but it contains a lot of works that many modern-day entrepreneurs may be creating. 

If you are someone that regularly creates works that are protected by copyright, I highly suggest filing for a federal registration. This blog post will explain why you need to file for the registration ASAP!
