U.S. Copyright Forms

The most commonly used copyright forms created by the U.S. Copyright Office are available below.  You may complete all the copyright forms online and print them on your printer.  The copyright forms are available in PDF format and are best viewed with the latest, free Adobe Acrobat Reader program. 

All forms submitted to the Copyright Office must be clear, legible, and on good quality 8.5-inch by 11-inch white paper.  The office produces completed registration certificates by scanning the submitted applications. Thus, poorly printed applications will result in poor-quality registration certificates.

We recommend that you consult with a copyright attorney before filing any copyright forms.

NOTE: Filing fees are effective through June 30, 2002. After that date, please check this website or call (202) 707-3000 for the latest fee information.
