Upcoming Event

Level Up Your Copyright Public Records Search

On August 1, 2024, at 2:00 p.m. eastern time, the U.S. Copyright Office is hosting a webinar: Level Up Your Copyright Public Records Search.

This sixty-minute webinar will share ways to search copyright public records with the Copyright Public Records System (CPRS) pilot, an easy-to-navigate, highly searchable database. Participants will walk away learning how to leverage CPRS’s many features to conduct simple and advanced searches successfully and information on additional research and support services the Office provides to the public. CPRS is the second component to be made publicly available as part of the Office’s new Enterprise Copyright System (ECS).

There will be an opportunity for public questions and answers. Participants must register for this Copyright Office webinar. Request ADA accommodations five business days in advance at (202) 707-6362 or [email protected].

The Copyright Office aims to broaden public awareness of what the copyright system encompasses and how to participate. A cornerstone of our current strategic plan is Copyright for All, and the Office dedicates itself to making the copyright system as understandable and accessible to as many members of the public as possible.
