Worth it to Register a Copyright? | QOTD

Carter Law Firm

Question of the Day: I know that if you simply put the copyright notice on a document that's letting folks know it's your IP. BUT, what I don't know is how to actually do the formal copyright registration AND if it's worth going through the process. Some say it's a waste of time and all I need is the copyright notification. What's the best solution and does this apply for everything I produce?

There are three instances where it makes sense to register your copyright:
1. If you’re going to license your work,
2. If you’re going to sell your copyright, or
3. You want to be able to sue for copyright infringement.

If legal questions were easy, we wouldn’t need lawyers.
