The United States Copyright Office is proud to be part of a long tradition of promoting progress of the arts and protection for the works of authors and is excited about the reengineering of their operations. Their goal is to make major improvements in their public services and a key part of this initiative is providing the opportunity to register your works online via their website.

The U.S. Copyright Office homepage has been created with the desire to serve the copyright community of creators and users, as well as the general public. Here you will find information about the new online registration option and other news about reengineering; all key publications including informational circulars; application forms for copyright registration; links to the copyright law and to the homepages of other copyright-related organizations; a link to online copyright records cataloged since 1978; news of what the Office is doing, including business process reengineering plans, Congressional testimony, and press releases; the latest regulations; and much more. The goal of the U.S. Copyright Office is to provide the best public service and the best quality product.
