A copyright registration protects your work.

Hi, I'm Steve. I'm an intellectual property attorney and author.

I use my experience to simplify the process of applying for a copyright . 

You don't have to be intimidated by the copyright process - the 15 Minute Copyright has your back!

Copyright registration is a process that you can do yourself if you have the right tools. The 15 Minute Copyright is the right tool for the job.

Don't wait until your work gets stolen! Registering the copyright for your work before it is published or before your copyright rights have been violated guarantees you the maximum protection and benefits that the copyright laws provide.

Copyright registration is one area where a DIY approach just makes sense.

For basic situations with no unusual circumstances, it makes perfect sense to do a DIY copyright registration. Unlike some legal processes where there is a lot of back and forth with the government or complicated rules or procedures to follow, the copyright process can be straightforward and easy when you follow the steps I show you.

I'll show you how to  file you own copyrights in 15 minutes - literally. How do I know the time it takes? I used my process myself. from beginning to end and it took me 14 minutes (and 6 seconds). It was not because I was any faster than you will be either. I put myself in your shoes and used my guide from beginning to end and got it done in under 15 minutes.

Once you learn how to file your own copyright application, you can file as many as you want.

No legal fees for each application!

You can use your new copyright application filing skills to file copyrights for any new works you create.  

Why register your copyright?

Did you know that your copyright rights attach automatically when you write? That's right. Automatically. Without doing anything.

So, if you have rights automatically, why do you need to register your copyright?

That's a great question. 

I'll give you six reasons - 2 business reasons and 4 legal reasons:

Business Reasons

  • Build assets - Copyright registration creates a business asset that you can license or sell.
  • Establish ownership - Copyright registration establishes a public record of your claim to your copyright and or ownership. Think of it kind of like  car title. It proves you own your work.

Legal Reasons

  • angle-right
    Evidence of validity
    Registration creates a legal presumption of validity that anyone challenging must prove is not correct. 
  • angle-right
    Registration is a pre-requisite for a lawsuit
    If you ever had to file a lawsuit about copyright infringement, you would have to have a registration before filing the lawsuit. So, it pays to get one right away in case you ever need it.
  • angle-right
    Registration can entitle you to statutory damages and attorney's fees
    This is a BIGGIE. Statutory damages and attorney's fees are often the biggest part of monetary awards asked for in copyright cases.
  • angle-right
    Satisfies the deposit requirement Sometimes the Copyright Office wants deposit copies of published works. By completing the registration process, which includes sending in two copies of published work (for non-electronically published works), you already meet this requirement.

About the Author

Hi, I'm Steve. I'm an intellectual property (or "IP") attorney and former engineer. I'm also a writer. I have been writing and selling my own books since 2011. I saw a need for writers to be able to file their own copyright applications, so I created this guide for fellow writers.

Because I handle copyright cases as part of my work as an IP attorney, I was in a good position to be able to translate my knowledge of the legal world into an easy-to-use guide for writers. I hope the 15 Minute Copyright helps you protect your work.

Still not sure?

You may be thinking that legal stuff is complicated and you just don't want to try something that will be too difficult. I wouldn't ever ask you to invest your hard-earned money into something that I didn't know you can do.

I have tested my technique. Had others evaluate it and make sure it is just as easy to use as I say it is. 

If you are still not sure about registering your work, take a look at the pros and cons below.
