Copyright Office Continues Services
Issue No. 806 - March 17, 2020

The U.S. Copyright Office continues to be open through our website for online registration, searching copyright-related records, and learning about copyright topics. We are also receiving registration applications and recorded documents sent by mail.

Members of the public may submit emails with questions through our website and reach us by phone at (202) 707-3000, while our office facilities are closed to the public to reduce the risk of transmitting the COVID-19 coronavirus. Additionally, we are unable to accept deliveries by personal courier at this time, though we are currently accepting deliveries via U.S. Postal mail and commercial delivery services such as UPS, FedEx, and DHS.

We have established a webpage with answers to specific questions about special handling and will soon include information about effective date of registration, search and certification services, and other matters. We will also be sending additional NewsNet bulletins with updated information as needed.
