Unless you mean you're in Berne for the Convention of Punctuationists and you're going to send me a copy of the new treaty regarding interrobang usage ("WTF is an interrobang?!" I hear you muttering.)
Sadly, that was not what a querier meant when he wrote "The title and all text are the sole intellectual copyright of the original author and recognized under the BERNE CONVENTION on copy write."
He meant "it's mine and you had better not steal it."
For those just discovering the joys of publishing here's a quick run down on why this guy was instantly disregarded:
(1) You can't copyright (note spelling) a title.
(2) "Sole intellectual copyright" doesn't actually make sense. He meant it's the intellectual property of the author (not "original author") and wanted me to know it's protected by copyright (note spelling) so I won't be tempted to turn it into fan fiction, publish it in Australia, sell it to Random House US and retire on my new-found fortune.***
(3) The Berne Convention was intended to have signatory countries recognize and enforce uniform copyright laws. It really doesn't have much to do with the copyright of an individual novel--that's the work of the US Copyright Office.
This kind of query is easy to discard with a rueful laugh. The faux ostentation and the bad writing pretty much make this a non-starter anyway.
But for those of you who are trying VERY hard to get the attention of an agent, the temptation to sound knowledgeable, with it, and in-the-know can be overwhelming. RESIST.
Resistance is NOT futile, I don't care what the Borg told you. RESIST!
I don't care how much you know about publishing, copyright, or intellectual property (other than you know your work has to be your own.) I don't care if you're under the impression the Berne Convention has something to do with Jason and his misplaced identity.
If you're just starting out you don't know what you don't know. Don't try to sound knowledgeable about publishing. Chances are good you're not. Like all industries we have our jargon, our abbreviations, our odd little ways.
Recently a telephone caller (yet another faux pas) to my office instructed me firmly that she'd had MANY meetings with agents at "The Book Expo America" and I was clearly a complete reptile for sounding the least doubtful about her experience. (What she didn't know is almost everyone in the industry who attends "The Book Expo America" actually calls it something else.)
Here's what you DO know a lot about: your novel.
Here's what I care about: your novel.
Nice how that works out isn't it.
****ok, so I had to make a joke about THAT book, I did.
