Need to know which copyright application to use to register your latest work? Want to download a copy of the application?
Help is as close as the Copyright Office's homepage on the World Wide Web.
The home page, located at http://lcweb.loc.gov/copyright/, offers the Copyright Office's most frequently requested circulars, information on registration, application forms, copies of the form letters used to answer queries sent in to the office, frequently asked questions, the latest office regulations and announcements to appear in the Federal Register, congressional testimony by the Register of Copyrights and more.
The homepage also provides links to other copyright-related information, including the full text of the copyright law.
In addition, most of the information available from the homepage is available through the office's gopher files, which may be ac-cessed through LC MARVEL at marvel.loc.gov (port 70).
Copyright Office registration records that have been cataloged since 1978, as well as recorded documents (such as transfers of copyrights), are also available through the homepage, LC MARVEL or by telnetting to locis.loc.gov and selecting the copyright menu.
For those who prefer to use a facsimile machine, the Copyright Office offers "Fax-on-Demand." By calling (202) 707-2600 from any touch-tone phone, the caller can receive by fax a menu of selections that includes the most frequently requested circulars, Federal Register announcements and other information. Up to three documents may be requested at once. Copyright application forms, however, are not available by fax.
