Work that is copyrighted and registered cannot be copied word for word (plagiarism) as this will entail breaking the copyrighting law as the copyrights belong to the original writer, if one goes against this it gives the original writer the right to sue him for plagiarism .One can only use the copyrighted work under permission from the owner of the copyrights or alter the sequence of words. Registering your work would make it easier for an infringer to track you down and ask for license to be able to use it.
