Copyright Office Adds Online Registration

WASHINGTON, DC (Hypebot) – The U.S. government can seldom be called an early adopter and the Copyright Office kept that tradition alive with their slow paper based copyright process. That all finally changes today with eCO and online registration. The new system offers:

  • $35 vs. $45 filing fee for a basic claim;
  • faster processing
  • earlier effective date of registration;
  • online status tracking;
  • secure payment by credit or debit card, or electronic check
  • ability to upload certain categories of deposits directly into eCO as electronic files
