File For Copyright Protection

How Do I Know If I Should File for Copyright?

If you are working on creative work that is meaningful to you, filing for copyright registration is a good idea. Whether you are looking to expand the work, publish it, or eventually grow it into a marketable idea, you want to ensure that it is protected.

Copyright is a form of protection for original works of authorship (like paintings, stories, photographs, songs) fixed in a tangible medium of expression (like paper, film, recordings). Copyright covers both published and unpublished works.

Copyright is used to protect literary, dramatic, musical, and artistic works, such as poetry, novels, movies, songs, computer software, and architecture. Copyright does not protect facts, ideas, systems, or methods of operation, although it may protect the way these things are expressed. Copyright protection only gives you a golden ticket to assert your rights, it does not prevent people from copying your work. What does this mean? Well, if someone copies your creation, you can (a) tell them to stop and maybe ask them for some compensation for their bad behavior and/or (b) file a lawsuit against them.

Making the Process Easy

Once we have collected and reviewed your information, there are only a few more steps.

  1. We ensure that it is correct and work with you if additional information is needed
  2. Depending on the service package you selected, we will either file the application or send you a copy to file yourself. Of course, we always provide instructions to make it easy and convenient. Even in the DIY world, we all need a little DIFM from the pros.

It’s important to note that we cannot guarantee that we will obtain registration of your work. If it clearly does not meet the requirements of being “copyright eligible material” we will let you know. Sometimes things are on the border. We will attempt to point this out to you in advance. Depending on the examiner that is assigned, however, while we believe a work is protectable, the examiner may disagree. We will work with the examiner to resolve any situations, but sometimes an application does not result in the issuance of a copyright certificate.

6 Easy Steps: The Copyright Registration Process

  1. Identify what your product is. We will help you identify the category or classification of your product.
  2. Identify the title and type of title of your product. This sounds easy right? Well, it can be a little complicated and so, we walk you through this process.
  3. We will also need to determine if your product has been published or not, and if so, when and how it was published. This can have an effect on the application content.
  4. We then walk you through the process to identify who the authors of your product are. The authors could be a person or organization or a combination of both.
  5. We then identify the owner of the copyright, which can be the same as the author or different.
  6. An important step is to find out exactly what the author contributed to the product. And so, we will ask a few questions about the product and allow you to select the types of contributions from a list. It will make more sense when you get to this step. It is rather straightforward.
