7 Advantages of Registering Your Copyright 

7 Advantages of Registering Your Copyright 

September 23, 2019

The advantages of registering your copyright include the following:

  1. It protects the copyright holder from infringement: copyright infringement is common as people can steal your creations and pass it off as their own. However, with registration, the copyright holder can sue for infringement in Court.
  2. It establishes a public record of the copyright holder’s ownership
  3. It gives you the sole right to produce/reproduce his/her original work as much as they like.
  4. It makes you the sole beneficiary of your creations: through copyright registration, you become the sole owner of your creations, and if someone else sells it or reproduces it, you are the only one going to get the benefit.
  5. With copyright registration, you get validity that lasts throughout your lifetime plus 70years after your death.
  6. It gives you the right to easily sell/transfer or assign his/her rights to a third party.
  7. You become entitled to seek statutory damages and attorney’s fees in Court for infringement. Without registration, actual damages can be quite difficult to prove.
