COPYRIGHT OFFICE INITIATES FILL­IN REGISTRATION FORMS ON WEBSITE
Fill­in copyright registration forms are now available on the
Copyright Office Website at www.copyright.gov. These forms may be
filled in online, printed, and mailed to the Office. At present, 19
forms are available in fill­in versions. In the near future there will
be fill­in versions of all forms.

COPYRIGHT OFFICE READY FOR Y2K
The Copyright Office has been collaborating with Library of Congress
technical staff  to test, modify, and upgrade all the information
systems to ensure that these systems will perform correctly on and
after January 1, 2000. Most of the work needed to accomplish this
objective has already been completed and the remainder will be
completed well before the end of this calendar year. The Copyright
Office will be ready to accept and process your requests for copyright
registration, document recordation, and all other services.
