Copyright Registration

Copyright registration is important. Although creative works are automatically “copyrighted” in the United States when recorded in a “tangible medium” (i.e., in way that it can be reproduced), the copyright cannot be enforced if it has not been registered. Also, failure to register early prevents the copyright owner from obtaining attorney fees in litigation from the infringer or from obtaining “statutory damages.” Those may be large. Also, it may be difficult to prove other damages. Without statutory damages, it may not be practical to enforce the copyright.

Copyright registration may be done in a number of ways. Contact Arnold & Saunders to see what we can do for your organization.
