How can I get free copyright protection for my own Audio,Video & Images ?
If you have created your own Audio,Video & images, How would you protect it ?

Is there any way to protect my own scientific papers or Inventions ? ?

How can I do it .. USING online ?
Do we have any trusted web sites .who provide this ?

Copyright is different from country to country. You'd need to be more specific in your search.

As JnA said, you need to be more specific - which countries do you want protection in? What level do you want? Are you happy for people to use your images/video, as long as you're credited?

Look up "creative commons", that's a good place to start.

There are exemptions to copyright for documents designed for "educational purposes", (like scientific papers) ...

Quote
Exceptions form an important part of many national copyright regimes. Probably the best known copyright exception is the U.S. ‘Fair Use’ Doctrine. This provision was enacted as section 107 in the 1976 enactment of Title 17, the U.S. Copyright Act but it has its origins in over a century of case law. It provides that a ‘fair use’ is not an infringement of copyright. ‘Fairness’ is determined with reference to the following four principles:

    * the purpose and character of the use, including whether such use is of a commercial nature or is for non-profit educational purposes;
    * the nature of the copyrighted work;
    * the amount and substantiality of the portion used in relation to the copyrighted work as a whole; and
    * the effect of the use upon the potential market for or value of the copyrighted work.

Purposes such as ‘criticism, comment, news reporting, teaching (including multiple copies for classroom use), scholarship, or research’ are suggested as possible ‘fair uses’ but these are not exclusive; other purposes also fit within the fair use criteria. As such this allows for a potentially very wide (and ever expanding) set of free uses covered by these exceptions.

Other jurisdictions such as the United Kingdom, Canada, South Africa, Australia and New Zealand and some other Commonwealth countries have similar provisions, which are tied to specific purposes (such as ‘fair dealing for research or private study’). These countries typically have a wide set of relatively narrow exceptions for the benefit of individuals, educational institutions, libraries or other cultural institutions and Governments. (The United States also has another provision, section 108, for the benefit of libraries and archives.) Such exceptions have been recognised as being acceptable.

If you put something on the Internet I think you have to accept that people could reproduce it, and even if you could afford a team of lawyers there is little that could be done to stop that happening once the cat is out of the bag.

If you want to keep documents on your computer, (and on removable storage media), secret there is free encryption software, e.g. ... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/TrueCrypt
