Registering Copyrights

Registering your claim of copyright promptly after publication can be critical to your ability to enforce your claim of rights. Failure to register within three months of first publication or prior to an act of infringement will likely prevent you from recovering attorney fees expended in pursuing a claim of infringement. If your income is derived from the sale or licensing of works of authorship including: software, photographs, artwork, printed publications, architectural drawings, audio visual works or music or sound recordings we encourage you to develop a program for registering your claim of copyright in these works. You can prepare an application for registration through the Copyright Office website.

We will gladly assist you with completing an application for registration. We encourage software developers to register each new version of their software to avoid any issues as to whether all of the source code has been covered by a registration.
