Copyright Registrations

We make filing copyright registrations a breeze for creators of all types of content.

Technology has revolutionized how we consume art.

Establishing and protecting ownership of your content now can save you time, money and the frustration of content-related issues (e.g. lawsuits, arguments, loss of income, etc.) in the future.

Why should I register a copyright?

There is no substitute for registering with the U.S. Copyright Office -- including mailing yourself your work, affidavit services, and other registration databases.

Registration is now a mandatory requirement before filing a lawsuit.

Protect Your Work Globally

Confidently focus on creating, knowing there is now an established public record of ownership of your original work.

Enhance Your Rights

As soon as an original work is created (or fixated), the copyright owner has automatic rights, however, you cannot enforce those rights until you register your work with the USCO.

Win Big Against Infringement

Registering before your content is misused or stolen can grant you a large payout — up to $150,000 per infringement + legal fees.

Legislation updates

Registration with the U.S. Copyright Office is now a mandatory requirement before filing an infringement suit.

New Legislation

As of 2019, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that creators cannot file a lawsuit unless they have obtained their USCO registration first.

Timely Incentive

If you don't register before an infringement occurs, you may be leaving serious money on the table ($150,000 per infringement).

New Rules

Mailing yourself a copy of your work is now a useless, obsolete practice. It does not grant you any rights or prove your ownership.

That's not all.

There are a number of additional benefits to having your content registered with the U.S. Copyright Office.

Physical Proof

Receive a certificate as physical proof of the registration of your original work.

CBP Protection

Record the registration with the U.S. Customs and Border Patrol for protection against the importation of infringing copies of your work.

Collect Damages

Collect damages of upto $150,000 per wilful infringement.*
