You should hire a copyright attorney to correct the registration. Read the copyright correction form at http://www.copyright.gov/forms/formca.pdf

Also, your friend could be in serious trouble because she did not add your names to the copyright application and you are authors to the work. Your friend could be criminally liable under *17 U.S.C. 506(e): Any person who knowingly makes a false representation of a material fact in the application for copyright registration provided for by section 409, or in any written statement filed in connection
with the application, shall be fined not more than $2,500.

: I wrote a script with two friends and one of them registered it at the C.O what can the other two authors do in this case. Can we add the names to the certificate afterwards.
