Copyright is a form of protection provided to authors of "original works of authorship", including literary, artistic, dramatic, musical, graphic arts and other creations.
Copyright protects the author's original expression as contained in a creative work but DOES NOT usually extend to any idea, procedure, process, method, system, discovery, name or short title or slogan.
Song lyrics, musical compositions, sound recordings and other original works may be protected under copyright law.
Once your music, artwork or design has been fixed - (recorded or written down) you can register a copy with the Library of Congress by filing the appropriate application(s).
We can prepare applications for copyright registration for your music, (songs, words, lyrics, compositions, sound recordings, music videos, etc.) In addition, any original album art or stage props or other unique designs may also be registered. (Even your website contents)
Our current fee for Copyright Applications is $249 which includes the government fees, attorney fees for preparation of the application, periodic reporting, and in most cases, all required copies and postage and forwarding of the certificate of registration.
For multiple applications, we offer further discounts. For more information about copyrights and copyright protection, visit our site: www.copyrightpros.com
