Once you've created an eBook, the last thing you want is for some unauthorized party to illegally copy your work, or worse yet claim it as their own.
While there may be technical means (such as password protection) that can make this kind of theft more difficult, they probably do not offer total security (what is to stop somebody simply retyping your work for example!)
Therefore, it is probably a good idea to think about copyright issues early on.

Why Copyright Your eBooks?
By Mark Levine
So, you’ve written the great American novel? You tried unsuccessfully to get it published and received your fair share of ding letters. Now the Internet has finally leveled the playing field. No longer are you at the mercy of literary agents or several large publishers. With e-publishing, you can publish your book for a nominal cost. That’s the upside. The downside is that because it is now so easy to zip your book to potential publishers and agents, you may be taking a huge risk, especially, if the party to whom you are sending the book, is not reputable. There are many cases in which authors have found their novels on other “authors’” sites under the name of the other “author.”
It is impossible for you to fully police the Internet, so you have to take the next best step - protect your work. The first thing you should do is register a copyright for your work. By virtue of writing your book in a fixed format (i.e. placing in on a disk or paper) you’ve copyrighted it. Obtaining a federal copyright is basically an insurance policy for your work. The question I get most often is, “If my work is automatically copyrighted by virtue of its creation, why should I register with the US Copyright Office?”
That is quite simple:
You don't need any better reasons than these to copyright your work. Before you send your work out to any more e-publishers or agents, protect yourself.
