Why Register Your Copyright?
As the creator of an original work, you immediately hold the copyright to your work. This means that only you have the right to reproduce, distribute, display, perform, and create derivative works from your original version. However, before you can bring any legal action to enforce your copyrights, you must register it with the U.S. Copyright Office. Also, when you register your copyright with the U.S. Copyright Office, you greatly increase the legal power you have against infringement of your work.
Knowledgeable attorneys, including our team at Trademark Access, usually recommend that copyright holders register their copyrights as soon as possible. Copyright owners who register within three months of the materials’ publication can be awarded attorney’s fees and statutory damages against potential infringment, and settle their claims quickly to avoid lengthy litigations down the road.
