All registration evidences are stored on our servers indefinitely.
Registrations made in basic accounts are archived after 12 months but are not deleted. All archived registrations and evidences are still valid, but no public information is provided, nor internal management is possible.
Archived registrations will return to public display and be manageable whenever a professional or agent account is hired in the future.

Once a work is registered neither the title, author or content of it can be modified as the registration proof is based in the fact that “that” is the precise works that was registered at a specific time and UTC time.
However, any modification is susceptible of new registration, though it is recommendable not to create confusion to the possible users by registering too many times the same work with no substantial changes. Whenever the author of a work makes any kind of change on it and registers it again, it becomes a “derived work”, by the 11th article of the Law of Intellectual Property (Spain).

Regards the title of a modified work and registered again, the Law does not prohibit to keep the same title as the first version.
It could be that two works from different authors have the same title. In that case, the Intellectual Property Law (Spain) in it’s 10.2 article, says that a title is only protected whenever it’s original. Is quite commons and perfectly legal that two authors have each one a song with the same title “The Dawn”. On the other hand a title containing, for instance, the name of one of the main characters of a the book like “Alice in Wonderland” would be considered as original and thus protected by copyright laws.

What you can change:

* The license of the work.
* Whether the registration is public or not (if others can see who the author is and he’s rights).
* Whether download of the work is available or not (if other, when consulting the rights, will be able to download the work)

Yes, this is an author’s right recognized by most legislations, though it is important that the author is aware that the modification of a license will be effective for those who use the creation after that change takes place, not affecting this change to those who might have acquired or used the work under prior conditions.

It is important, to guarantee legal safeguards, that those authors modifying the conditions in which they make the work available, clearly notify that the license has changed to avoid this way any mistake with those who might have used the work previously.

When registering a work in Safe Creative, the system provides a registration number and a label that identifies it.
It is not an empty tag content (hence the informative nature of it). Asked for information, if it is linked, through the html code, will provide direct access to the registration informative page of the work, where data is found as title, author or authors, rights holders, date of registration, license granted…
In this registration informative page users can optionally request a registration declaration.

Index tags are keywords* that allow the organization of our records according to their different contents.
May be included at the time of registration or later when editing the work. Also through an joint action, editing several works at once.
This labeling scheme allows to classify the different records as if it they were in a folder system. The tag indexing works as a “labels” system for content, classifiyng them. They facilitate the search within our account and allow other users to find specific content that can help them to get to our work (if it is a public record).

* The various index tags must be entered separated by commas.

When talking about registering a blog we can talk about two different issues:

1.- Register the blog itself: the design template, drawings or images, code, structure… In this case, the registered work to be protected is the very blog.

2.- The contents published in the blog: in this case the blog is only the publishing media. The work that has to be registered to protect and inform about author’s rights are the posts, as literary works. To register your posts you can use our automatic feed registration.

1.- Registration of a blog as a work
—————————————–
In the first case, it is possible that only the graphical elements or design templates are wanted to be registered. In this case a file containing the template with the images and the rest of the components of the work should be uploaded.
Making the registration it can be stated under the “artistic” category as electronic pages and multimedia.
If the development of the blog also includes the programing code, it can also be registered all together as “software project”, or there can be a registration for the project itself and another registration for the design.
It’s not specially relevant to choose one or other denomination, for the work gets registered and stored anyway, and this classification is aimed to provide some orientation for the search and query features.

2.- Registration of the posts of a blog
——————————————–
The second option is that the work to be registered is not the blog itself, but the contents in it. The blog is a publishing platform, where one or various authors might publish and not all the posts might have the same license. It is also possible that an author publishes an article in a blog and later publishes the same article, for instance, in a magazine, a book or any other media.

In this case, the posts are the ones to be protected or identified with the registration tag to inform about the rights.
They can be registered each one individually as they are written, or all of them together included in documents or files…

Once registered, the specific html code of the registration can be added to the post linking it this way to Safe Creative’s information page.

To use this feature do as follows:

1.- Lo into your account

2.- Go to “Services – Automatic registrations – Registration feeds”

3.- Click on “+Add a new work feed”

4.- Follow the wizard’s instructions

Important notes on the automated registration through an RSS feed

The RSS feed or files usually allow two publication choices:

1.- Publication of only the headline and an intro with each item header.

2.- Publication of the full content of the article.

By automating the registration of a website through your feed or RSS channel, Safe Creative will only take the very content recorded in the RSS file itself, so it is very important that it contains the full article, otherwise the registration evidence will only be of the headline and intro text that includes the feed.

Check the settings of your system to confirm that the feed includes all the content and, if not, change your settings as soon as possible.

We recommend that, once activated, you to check in the first registrations that indeed the feed is publishing articles with the correct format and content, being what you intended to register. You can do this by downloading the file registered and thus checking its contents.

Also keep in mind that any RSS feed to work properly must have a date and hour of publication for each post. This is common on most standard blogs, but could be missing in some cases, so, please check this too as the registration could not work as expected if date was missing.

The registration declaration is a document which contains all the authorship and copyright information that has been registered in Safe Creative for a specific work.
The registration declaration provides relevant data on those works we want to use and which are very valuable in the case of being warned of alleged misuse of it.
It is desirable that the user of a copyrighted work obtains it. Why? It identifies the work with the registration code, title, author or rights holder, registration date and, above all, with the valid license given at the date of application.
The note will provide support to users in the event that the author changes the license first given, for under the varying conditions might occur that he or she decides to claim misuse of an earlier accessed work.
Registered works can be deleted from the edition page, but for security reasons for those users who might have consulted the registrations and the rights, the deletion means that the inscription will not appear on the queries of the registry, but Safe Creative keeps the information as a security procedure.

The note, therefore, supports the user of another’s work.
