United States Copyright Records

A copyright is a form of legal protection available for any original work that is fixed in some tangible medium, such a painting, a sound recording, or written text. Any work, published or unpublished, automatically receives copyright protection.Write a poem on a napkin in a bar and it immediately receives copyright protection courtesy of U.S. federal law.However, millions of people take the extra step of registering copyrights every year with the U.S. Copyright Office. Registering a copyright means there is a public record of your copyright as evidenced by a certificate of registration. Moreover, in a legal dispute registered copyrights may be easier to enforce and may be eligible for more damages.

We have simplified millions of copyright records, drilling down each registration record to a summary of the most important information. You can discover things about a copyright such as who the claimant is, when it was registered and the copyright type.

The U.S. Copyright Office is the official agency responsible for the administration and processing of copyrights. If you need more information about this copyright, you can go to the Copyright Office website and pull up the full record.

While we strive to reflect the changes made from the Copyright Office website as quickly as possible, the Copyright Office’s website is updated on a daily basis which may result in discrepancies with our records.
