Filing your Application Domestically and Internationally

Protect your music, stories, statutes, movies, photographs, art, computer software, logo designs, and all other forms of creative work with a copyright from the Library of Congress.

The advantages of registering a copyright include the following:

  1. Establishes that you are the copyright owner by law;
  2. Allows you to sue infringers in a federal court in your jurisdiction; and
  3. Provides statutory damages in the thousands per incident (damages by law, i.e. you don’t have to prove you have been damaged, the law automatically provides for damages whether you have been damaged or not).
