Registering a Copyright is a quick and easy way to establish a degree of protection on one’s original authorship.
Benefits of registering a copyright are
- Registering a copyright creates a public record establishing ownership of authorship to an identified copyright holder.
- Registering a copyright grants the copyright holder the power to sue others for copyright infringement in federal court for statutory damages. If infringement is deemed willful, damages can be awarded up to $150,000 per unauthorized use. Without registration, only an award of actual damages and profits will be available, which can be quite difficult to prove.
- Copyright holders receive an official certificate showing the copyright registration from the United States Copyright Office.
The Law Office of Jeffrey Herman charges a low flat-fee of $355 for filing a copyright registration with the U.S. Copyright office. This includes all government filing fees. To proceed with your copyright registration please click on the button below.
