Myows (short for ‘My Original Works’), one of the easiest ways to protect your intellectual property online, just got that much easier to use.

The South Africa-based company, which we covered in our list of 5 ways to protect your work online, has rolled out a new feature, introducing a completely automated way to add your online work to your Myows account using RSS feeds.

The service allows users to register copyrighted files online for proof of ownership and provides both the guidelines and the means to build a copyright infringement case.

Myows’ latest feature allows you to automatically add copies of your work that you’ve posted online, provided you have access to an RSS feed.

This throws the door wide open to a wide variety of online services, allowing you to automatically save images from Flickr and Dribbble, save posts from WordPress and Blogger and more. No matter what kind of content is being imported, it will be saved to your Myows account as a PDF file.

MyOws Myows rolls out automated copyright protection for content on Flickr, Dribbble or any site with an RSS feed

Myows automatically registers content to your account from anywhere on the Web, whether photos, text or designs, provided it has access to an RSS feed.  Any content that has already been uploaded or posted online will not be registered.

Myows does warn, however, that the feature is in beta and there are still a couple of bugs to work out, so the feature may not work as expected right away. In our experience, it took a while for the files to show up, but once they did, it was working seamlessly.

Myows also recently rolled out a new contract generator, as well as a built-in copyright detection feature, allowing users to identify unauthorized copies of their work online.
