How to Register a Copyright in Delaware


Copyright registration is the process of securing your rights as an author. It protects original works of authorship, including books, music, paintings and other types of art. In this article we will discuss how to register a copyright in Delaware.

Register a Copyright in Delaware


Copyright registration is a legal process that allows you to claim rights in your work. The protection begins the moment you create an original work, such as writing or creating photographs. You can use the U.S. Copyright Office to help you register your work and copyright it, or do it yourself if you have time and patience on your side.

If you choose to register with the U.S. Copyright Office on your own, they provide tools that make this process fairly simple; if not entirely so, then at least less daunting than hiring an attorney would be!

The first step is filling out an application form online (or by hand if you prefer). The form asks for information about where and when you wrote/created/edited etc., but not much else beyond those basics – so there’s no need for fancy legal language here! It also asks whether there are any conflicts between different works within one application submission–this is where having multiple projects completed separately comes into play (i’ll explain more later).

First Steps

The first thing you need to do is decide if your work is eligible for copyright protection. If it is, follow these steps:

  • File a copyright application with the US Copyright Office. You can do this online or by mail. The application costs $35 (as of 2016) and you’ll need to include a copy of your work as well as the registration fee of $65 (as of 2016). You’ll also need to provide a mailing address where you can send correspondence, if different from where you live or work.
  • Wait three weeks after submitting your application before checking back on its status. The Office will let you know if there are any issues with it at this point; if there aren’t any problems, they’ll send you an official notice saying that they’ve received everything and are preparing to register your claim under their system.

File of the copyright application

To file for copyright, you must submit a completed application to the U.S. Copyright Office. To do this, you must visit their website and complete your registration online. You will need to submit certain information about your work, including:

  • A description of the work (including any underlying works)
  • The title of the work
  • Your name in which the copyright is claimed (this can be an individual’s name or company name)

You will also need to include payment for a fee when filing with the US Copyright Office. However, this fee varies depending on how many items are submitted together with one application form. If you’re submitting multiple items together as one item, there are additional fees that must be paid based on length and type of submission being made (eBooks only cost $35).


  • Registering a copyright is the best way to ensure that you’re protecting your work.
  • You can register a copyright in Delaware through the US Copyright Office, which costs about $35.
  • It’s important to register a copyright as soon as possible after creating it—the sooner, the better!
