If anyone has had trouble registering any work lately, it’s because the Copyright Office is testing and upgrading it’s electronic registration software for the electronic Copyright Office (eCO). Upgrading software…..you know what that might mean. They will be closed while upgrading from August 12th at 5pm until August 15th at 6pm. We will post any changes to the process here.

Last time, they moved the progress column from the right side to the left side. This should be a more major change.

So if you have anything timely (like Jack today), best to register today.

As we like to say until we’re blue in the face here on the Copyright Zone- “Register early and often”.
