Copyright Office Fees To Change Effective July 1, 2006

The Copyright Office is publishing a final rule establishing adjusted fees for its services. The adjusted fees will recover a significant part of the costs to the Office of registering claims and will provide full cost recovery for many services provided by the Office that benefit only, or primarily, the user of that service. The basic registration fee is scheduled to increase from $30 to $45. The proposed fee increase for preregistration has been eliminated, and the proposed increase for group registration of photographs has been reduced to the fee for basic registration. All the adjusted fees are scheduled to be effective July 1, 2006, unless Congress acts before that date stating disapproval of the fees. (Read further information.)
