Copyright Registration Service

Copyright Songs and Lyrics Direct Online

We operate a secure file upload facility that allows safe and easy uploading of songs, music and lyrics for copyright registration purposes. To use this service you will need to apply for membership of the Songrite Copyright Office.

It only takes a few moments to complete the application form.

Email alerts are in operation to notify the client of successful upload and to warn of any files waiting or pending completion. This system allows for safe, secure transfer of files and dramatically reduces the time taken dealing with copyright registrations using regular mail.

It costs nothing to open and maintain an account and you are only charged for the copyrights you want to register and you pay, only when you are completely satisfied all the information and details pertaining to that work are accurate and in order.

How your application is processed:

Copyright Office  processes your application for registration of copyrights upon receipt of your work. Copyright application files are recorded in an automated system and assigned a file number in the order that they are received.

Review of your application:

A reviewer checks each application to ensure that complete and clear information has been provided. If there are any questions or uncertainties, the reviewer may need to contact the applicant or their agent to request clarification of certain points or to provide additional information to process the application accurately.

How we'll inform you:

   All contact is by regular mail or by email.

Making Payments for online registrations:

 You make the registration payment only when you are completely satisfied all information is correct and you agree with the details as presented to you.

Songrite Copyright Office issues certificates of registration that provide a clear and legible record of registered works. You can help by making sure that the information in your application is complete, accurate, and legible, and that the work submitted is of an acceptable quality.

When an application is considered complete and the appropriate registration fee is received, a registration number is assigned to it. At this point a registration certificate is printed, a quality check performed, and it is mailed to the agent or applicant. Digital documents and Registration Certificates are sent to the agent or applicant by Email.


Errors and Mistakes:

At the client's request, a certificate of correction will be issued should a clerical error appear on an original registration certificate.
