If I Don't Have To Register My Copyright For Protection, Why Not Wait Until There Is An Infringement Before Registering It?
You can wait until an infringement, but it will have a serious impact on any financial recovery. It is important to remember that you are qualified for a substantially larger award if published works are registered within three months of publication, and if nonpublished work is registered prior to an infringement. In addition, registration allows for the award of attorney`s fees.
In addition, compared to other intellectual property copyright registration is relatively cheap at $30.00!
