Copyright Office Submits Fee Study to Congress
On February 21, the Copyright Office submitted a report to Congress that
analyzes the fees charged by the Office and proposes an adjustment to the
registration fee for online registrations. This fee will go into effect
with the activation of the online registration system on or about July 1.
If Congress takes no action within 120 days, the Register may implement
the new fees. As an incentive to use the new online registration system,
the fee for a basic registration filed online will be $35. The fee of $45,
established in 2006, would remain the same for paper filings. The Register
proposes the $35 fee both for those who submit their deposits online and
those who submit deposits in physical form.
In addition, the Register proposes a fee for listing contents titles of
individual works in collections. The proposed fee is $1 per title
for electronic claims and $3 per title for paper claims. (Read further
