U.S. Copyright Registration

This service is included in all of our publishing packages.

Registering your work with the U.S. Copyright Office provides you with peace of mind as well as a public record of your ownership of the material. With the U.S. Copyright Registration service, Rutledge Hill will complete and submit the necessary paperwork to the U.S. Copyright Office with a copy of your book. Once registration is complete, you will receive an official certificate that verifies your book’s coverage under U.S. copyright regulations.

Steps/fulfillment timeline:

  • Copyright forms are completed and sent to the U.S. Copyright Office with a copy of your book.
  • It takes 6 to 12 months for the author to receive the completed Certificate of Registration from the copyright office. Rutledge Hill will receive digital notification when the certificate is sent.
