Q.Should I hire an attorney to file a copyright registration form?

A.Although a copyright owner may register a copyrighted work on his or her own, we strongly recommend all copyright owners use an attorney to prepare the initial application, because tiny mistakes can be made and often are and go unnoticed even by the Copyright Office. If this happens, some mistakes can invalidate your copyright registration and inevitably your copyright protection.

If, however, this is too costly or not possible, then at least employ an attorney to review your completed application to verify it has been completed correctly.

Should you the copyright owner decide to proceed on your own, read the instructions slowly and carefully to avoid what may turn out to be a costly or deadly mistake. If you are unsure about any particular aspect of the form, contact an attorney for verification. Many of the questions asked seem simple and straightforward, but often are not. Again read the instructions carefully, and if you unsure about any particular aspect contact and attorney.
