Be creative. I'm sure there are a lot of ways to prove both ownership of the material and authorship. Besides, you
cannot allow the possiblility of someone claiming authorship of your works to deter you from publishing them. I think
copyright ownership can be proved a variety of different ways:
2. Have a notary or other of non-partisan person, witness your work.
3. Take a picture of your work and have a third party film processor develop and date your work.
4. Secretly embed your contact details in the text of your article. That could be compelling proof of ownership.
