PHASE 1 - COPYRIGHT APPLICATION

A copyright application is prepared and filed with the United States Copyright Office, along with suitable deposits showing the work.  The nature of the deposit depends on the type of work being copyrighted.  Fees for preparing a copyright application include:

Attorney's Fees:  $225
Government Filing Fee:  $  45
Estimated Total for Copyright Filing:  $270

These fees may increase if special work is required to file the copyright application.   If subsequent prosecution is required to obtain the copyright registration, you will be provided with an estimate of anticipated fees and costs.

PHASE 2 - REGISTRATION

When all requirements for registering the copyright are met, the copyright is assigned a registration number, and the original copyright application with the registration number affixed is returned by the United States Copyright Office.
