Copyrights Register

Effective protection and evidence
for copyright owners in the EU

Welcome to the Copyrights Register of the Copyright Office.
Our register provides a solution for copyright owners in the European Union:

— to register evidence of the creation date of a copyright protected work; and
— to register a chain of transfer(s) of the copyright with regard to a work.

The Copyrights Register provides parties in the market certainty with regard to the rightful owner of a copyright protected work and the one being entitled to transfer the copyrights with regard to a work.

By registration of legitimate transfers of copyrights in the Copyrights Register, owners of digital and non-digital works are able to sell and transfer works together the copyrights with regard thereto.

Please note that each copyright owner is able to determine which parts of the copyright registration are to remain confidential.
