How can I protect my designs?

Where do I find a COPYRIGHT APPLICATION?

The U.S. Copyright Office is now accepting electronic filing of copyright registrations.

Advantages of using the Electronic Copyright Office (ECO) system include:

• Lower filing fee of $35 for a basic claim (for online filings only)
• Fastest processing time
• Online status tracking
• Secure payment by credit or debit card, electronic check, or Copyright Office deposit account

 

The U.S. Copyright Office offers a great tutorial and supplemental information about Copyright. Before filing online read the eCO Tips, eCO FAQs, and the eCO Tutorial which are listed on the opening page.  The information is presented as a PowerPoint-type presentation which is easy to follow though it takes a little time.
