U.S. citizens are required to register before filing a lawsuit for copyright infringement. If a work is registered either before the infringement takes place or within 3 months of publication then, in the U.S., the copyright holder is eligible for both statutory damages, which can reach $150,000 per infringement, and attorney’s fees. Even though non-citizens can sue for for copyright infringement in the U.S. without a registration being filed, they are only able to claim actual damages, which is the greater of what the copyright holder lost or the infringer gained from the use of the work. In many cases that amount is effectively zero. So if you might ever have cause to sue in the U.S. you should register your work in a timely manner so that you have all of your rights at your disposal.

Safe Creative charges a modest service fee plus the cost of the copyright office filing fee. Check prices and conditions here.

    Hola Richard, para registrar tus obras tienes que abrir cuenta en Safe Creative y subir los ficheros que contengan las obras para que queden en depósito. Al subir tendrás que decir qué tipo de obra es y alguno datos básicos. Saludos.

    @ I Johann, I’m afraid you need to contact Jamendo.com directly. We cannot answer questions on their behalf :)

    @Monicka That would be great. You can log into your account, go to “My works” view and from the dropdown menus for several files, or the one by the work, you might start the process. It’s quite simple, but if you need help, don’t hesitate to contact us through our “contact” form http://www.safecreative.org/contact

  6. I would like to register my works in the U.S. Copyright Office from Safe Creative.
    All my regards
    Monicka.
