CreativePeople is the social network of SafeCreative, to promote the creators of musical, literary, and visual works.

Works can be sent to be featured on CreativePeople these ways:

  • During the registration process. When you register a work, you can select the option of allowing to preview it, download it, or viewing an evaluation version. If any of these options is available, the work can be sent to Creative People for more visibility. It must also belong to one of the aforementioned categories (text, music, illustration, photography, and crafts).
  • Through a registration profile. “My Account” > “Registration profiles and licenses”. When creating a new registration profile, there is an option to send works to CreativePeople. This way, anytime a new work is registered using this profile, it will also be sent to the social platform for more visibility.
  • Sending previously registered works. A work that has already been registered can be sent to CreativePeople from its own information page. There is a list on the left with an option to do so, as long as a the work can be previewed, downloaded, or an evaluation version is available to peview. It should belong to one of the categories featured on CreativePeople (text, music, illustration, photography, and crafts).

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)

To register works which are in Safe Creative at USCO you need to provide us with some additional information and data. Though we already have much of the required information the rest should be provided in an assisted process.

1) Work Data

Title: title of the work to be registered. By default the system uses the same title as it appears in Safe Creative, but it can be changed.
Type of work: select the type of work. If neither type corresponds to the work to be registered, do not continue with the process, make sure is a kind of work that USCO allows to be registered through it’s electronic office, or contact Safe Creative.
Published work verification work: if the work has already been published you must check this box.
Date of first publication: if published, write the date the work was published for the first time.
Country of first publication: if the work has been published in several countries, select the first in which it was published.
Year of creation: the year the work was originally created, which may be before the date of publication or the same year. By default the system takes the year the work was recorded in Safe Creative, but since it might have been created before, you can tell the correct date here.
Standard Code Type: there are different types of standard code numbers depending on the type of content. Select any of the international standard code types corresponding to the published work.
Standard Code Number: enter here the international standard number of this published work. Note that the standard code is usually different depending on the type of work we are dealing with.

2) Authors

This screen will allow you to set the different contributions of authors to the work.
If more than one author, you will be able to specify the contribution of each.
Name, middle name and surname are taken from the existing default information in the database, but can be modified.
Country of Residence: current country of residence of the author.
If you want to register under pseudonyms instead of real name, check the box “This author uses the following pseudonym” and then type the alias you use.
You must specify which is the author’s contribution or contributions to the work being registered.
In “other” you can write a type of contribution that is not listed among the options displayed for this type of content.

3) Holders of rights

This screen shows all the record-holders of the work rights that have been stated in Safe Creative, with name, surname, address, and other information. All of them must have be previously registered at Safe Creative for this work.
Include in the USCO registration (must be owner of rights in the U.S.) this box is checked when the ownership of rights is valid in the USA.
Address 1: regular direction
Address 2: you can add a second contact address
Type of rights transfer: you must specify the type of transfer of rights that has been made. If it is “author” those are by default, but if you are not author of the work you must specify whether it is by writing agreement, by will or otherwise. If “other” you must specify which is it in the box to that effect.

4) Contact and Shipping

In this screen we specify up to two contact addresses for two different purposes:
Contact: is optional and allows that people interested in the work they see at USCO registration information system can get in touch with the person who applyed for registration.
Mailing Address: this address will be used by USCO to send you their registration certificate once finished.

5) Review and Payment

This screen displays a summary of what is going to be sent to be registered, and all the information provided to that effect. It is important to make sure everything is correct, and if not, correct it before sending.
Completing the process
Once everything is correct we must hit “finalize registration”.
At that time the system will present us a screen with the terms of use to be read. Once reviewed go to accept them by checking the bottom right checkbox.
Payment of the service
After you give the ok to the terms of use you will be prompted to pay the marked amount*.

The ISAN code is a voluntary numbering system, similar to the ISBN used for publishing or the ISWC for musical tracks, for the identification of audiovisual works. Each ISAN code identifies a unique audiovisual work and remains unchanged throughout the life of the work, regardless of language, format or use that is given to it. The ISAN code is a unique reference number, permanent and internationally recognized for audiovisual works identification.

It’s a tool that improves the management and operations of the global audiovisual industry and its use as a simple and unambiguous reference to the work is used by many organizations, including the Property Registry of Spain.

It is a 24-digit numeric code divided into three parts:
Root: identifies the audiovisual work.
Episode: identifies the parts of a serial work.
Version: Identifies the versions of a work.

Example: 0000811F 0000-0000 0000-0000

Its purpose is to identify any audiovisual work by assigning a universal code. This unique identification allows a more efficient management of the entire audiovisual industry in global operations.

The ISAN code is assigned by ARIBSAN under the authorization of ISAN-IA, which is responsible for the global ISAN system administration, and appointed by ISO as the registration authority for ISAN Standard. ARIBSAN is the registration agency authorized to manage and process ISAN codes of audiovisual works.

Any person or entity may request an ISAN code. It is intended for audiovisual industry professionals, producers, writers, broadcasters, distributors, advertisers, etc., and any organization or other entity representative of the industry sector.

The ISAN code assigned to a work, does not in any way constitute a proof of ownership or authorship of the work.

First check your inbox spam (junk mail).
If our verification or to download email is nowhere to be found it’s likely that your email server is mismanaging “received” emails and making false unwanted email positive assumptions, removing at its discretion mails that completely fails to deliver.
Using @hotmail.com for these tasks can be problematic for this very same reason.
How may I solve it?
You can go to your hotmail settings of your account (top right gear icon), to “More email settings”, “Safe and blocked senders”, “Safe senders”, write “noreply@safecreative.org” address and “Add to list”.

Safe Creative is based on the technology to generate evidence of authorship as solid as economic and comfortable. However, to achieve the best evidence it is necessary to have the best information. ​​Therefore the strength of a registration depends very much on the quality of the information each user provides.

In addition to the file representing the work to be of sufficient quality to identify the work upon which to build the evidence, it is essential that user’s personal data is complete, accurate and up to date.

If we do not put the full name or last name, only use initials, there are typos or information is out of date, future certificates, taking the default information available at the time of registration, will also be generated incomplete and perhaps even wrong. This may involve a number of problems especially if you want to use the evidence authorship independently from Safe Creative.

So the more and better information you fill in, the better it will be to make the most out of the evidence generated in Safe Creative. So remember to fill out with the best and accurate information. Those who already have done it, periodically verify that the email, your address and any other information is perfectly updated and without errors.

To enter or verify the existing information, go to “My Account” “Personal Data”:
