Anatomy of a copyright registration

Posted by ipelton on: May 18th, 2012

In September 2011, I posted about what an application for copyright registration with the Library of Congress looks like. See: Anatomy of an application for copyright registration.

Remarkably, the application is now a registration. The process took approximately 8 months.  Many copyright applications – or at least those filed on paper or before the Copyright office’s electronic filing system existed – take far longer. Some applications our firm has filed for clients have take more than 2 years.

Of course, it is encouraging to see that the delay appears to be much shorter now at least for applications filed online.

One interesting feature of the registration is that the “effective date” is the filing date. And the record now appears in the Copyright Office’s online database.
