At BelieversBookServices we have learned a lot through the years. We are really good at some things. We are not good at other things. And, there are parts of the publishing process that can only be handled by the author.
One of these functions is applying for copyright. We used to offer this service for authors and found that we were in the way. We doubled the work/time it took to get things done, and in the end, all of the info had to come from our author clients anyway. So, we removed ourselves and point people to some practical information, and rather than reinvent the wheel, we have listed a few helpful articles below.
The main theme in all the articles tends to be: “Refer to the Copyright Office for specifics.”
- There are tons of exceptions that the Copyright office understands and only they can help explain.
- The Copyright Office constantly tweaks their process, which means refer to point #1.
As always, we are here to help. Let us know what questions you have and we will do our best to answer them.
