This article should not have given you any instructions as to how to register, what is registerable, or the legality, or validity of any registration. To find information on how to register, head over to www.copyright.gov.
What it hopefully has done, is provide you with an understanding of just how the Copyright Office has done work in the past, and how it continues to serve the public moving forward. It’s no easy task, as there are thousands of applications that are made during any given month.
This piece was made possible, in part, by the in-roads that the Advertising Photographers of America made, and we thank them for those arrangements, and for all they continue to do for photographers on the copyright front.
