  • Benefits of Copyright Registration :

    • Stronger Legal Protection:

      A registered copyright strengthens your case in court if someone copies your work without permission. It provides prima facie evidence of ownership and the date of creation.

      A registered copyright creates a presumption of ownership in your favor. The burden of proof shifts to the infringer to demonstrate otherwise.

    • Increased Damages:

      In infringement cases, courts may award statutory damages and attorney's fees to registered copyright owners.

    • Border Protection:

      Registered copyrights can be used to prevent unauthorized imports of infringing copies.
