Copyright Registration by Mail

All applications for copyright registration must contain the following information:

The name and a complete address of the owner of the copyright: some authors prefer to use pen names, rather than their real names, on their published works. You may include your pen name on your application for registration, but you must also give your full legal name. This is necessary because, without your legal name, it would be difficult to determine the full duration of the copyright, i.e., your lifetime plus a minimum of 50 years.

  1. Complete the appropriate registration form CR3a, CR3-m- or CR3X  CR3 Forms.
