How to Register a Copyright for Wholesale


Copyright is a powerful tool for protecting your design, but it will only protect you if you register your work before someone else does. This step-by-step guide shows you how to register a copyright for Wholesale.

Register your Copyright in 3 Easy Steps

Step 1: Fill Out your Registration Form.

The first step is to fill out Form CA. You can get this form from the U.S. Copyright Office website or by calling them at (202) 707-3000 (press 2 for forms).

Step 2: Complete Form CA.

Step 3: Mail it to the U.S. Copyright Office in Washington.

The United States Copyright Office allows you to register a copyright for books, music and other types of creative work. You can do so online and it doesn’t cost very much at all. Just $35 per work.

You may also want to think about registering your copyright if you are an individual or a business owner who sells wholesale items (such as clothing). Registering your copyright is something that many people don’t realize they need until after they’ve been ripped off by someone else stealing their idea in order to make money off of it themselves with no credit given back to the person who came up with the idea first.

Search for Prior Art

The first step to registering a copyright is to search for prior art. Prior art is a term used in the legal world to describe any information that was produced before your work came into existence. In other words, it’s basically anything that has been created before you create something new. If you’re writing a book, for example, then prior art would include any books that have already been written on the subject matter of your novel.

You should begin your search by performing a quick Internet search. You can also check out the US Copyright Office, Library of Congress and Patent and Trademark Office websites, as well as Google Patents (which we will discuss more below). Finally, you might want to ask friends or family if they happen to know anyone who may have already registered something similar.

The best way to find out if anyone else has already come up with an idea similar enough that it could potentially interfere with yours is by searching Google Patents—it’s free and extremely easy. Just type in your keywords: “registered trademarks,” “patented inventions” or even just “copyrights,” then choose from one of the options provided under “type”: “inventors named on application;” “application number;” or “description of mark/invention.” For example: If someone had invented something similar before but never actually patented it because they didn’t think there was anything special about it (or perhaps forgot all about their invention), this would show up as well!

Create Your Design Documentation

If you’re claiming copyrights for a design, it’s important to be able to verify that the work is yours. The easiest way to do this is to keep detailed records of all aspects of the creation process. If you want to register your copyright, you’ll need these documents. The following are some examples:

  • A detailed description of what was done in creating your product or design, including materials used and any special processes involved (for example, a photograph of someone using a piece of equipment).
  • A record of how long it took to create each product or design element (for example, hours spent working on certain designs). This information should also include cost estimates if applicable (for example, cost per hour for labor or material costs).
  • Records verifying monetary value associated with each individual product or design element (this can be tricky if multiple parties contributed ideas; just make sure they’re clear in their documentation).

Mark, Protect and Enforce your Copyright

  • Register your copyright.
  • Make sure you’re the only person who can use it.
  • Protect your design with a patent.
  • Enforce your rights through the court.


Copyright is a form of protection for original works of authorship fixed in any tangible medium of expression. Copyright applies to both published and unpublished works. For example, you can copyright a book, painting, or song that you have created by writing it down or recording it on tape.

As soon as you create your work, it’s protected by copyright law even if no one else sees it. However, registering your copyright doesn’t mean you can’t get sued for plagiarism if someone steals your ideas. It does make it easier to prove ownership and enforce your rights when necessary though so don’t wait until someone steals from you before filing the official paperwork with the government.


If you’re a designer or entrepreneur, you know that your work is truly more than just a line on a piece of paper. It’s your passion and expression that can help build your business. With copyright protection, you can ensure that your hard work and ideas will remain yours forever – no matter what happens in the future.
