My book is a court transcript so it has no author. I put my name as Editor. But KDP wants an author. Am I just being too persnickety, should I just put my name as the author?

You could name the author:

Court Transcript

and be listed as "Transcript, Court" :)

Also is this protected by any sort of Copyright??

and do you have the right to publish it?

There is no copyright.

Are you serious about listing 'Court Transcript' as the author?

Shure Why not???

If you publish more of them, they will all line up in a search

A message to KDP support seems to have fixed the problem. It's moved from draft to publishing without an author.

I was informed that "Anonymous" will suffice.
