Copyright Questions

Why register your work?

Registering copyright with Copyright House creates a physical, tangible proof that you were in possession of a particular work at a certain date and time.

If anyone else registers that work or claims to be the creator of it at a later date, then Copyright House can provide objective proof of your earlier registration.

What if someone copies my work?

If somebody publishes your copyrighted work online, we can issue an official DMCA Take Down Notice to the Internet Service Provider and the owner of the website where your content has been posted without your permission.

If someone infringes your copyrighted work offline then we can help you by contacting them and their publisher to stop the infringer using your work without your consent.

What exactly do I get when I register my copyright with Copyright House?
  • Your files are uploaded through a secure private server using a Comodo RSA Extended Validation Server CA SSL Certificate
  • These files are then downloaded, encrypted and stored in fire-proof data safes
  • Encrypted copies of your files are stored in the strong room of a solicitor's office
  • Every 3 years we make an extra backup of all registered works to prevent data loss
  • Our unlimited registration packages allow up to 2GB per file
  • Remaining registration credits never expire
  • We issue a free certificate of registration for each registered copyright and can provide a certified affidavit in the event of a court case * Terms and Conditions Apply
  • We issue official DMCA notices in the case of online plagiarism
  • Registrations are listed free of charge in the Copyright House Directory of Registered Works (Unless you choose to opt out)

Can I register my songs after publishing them on the web?

You can, however it is better to register your songs, artworks, photos, designs or books before you publish them. You may be tempted to show your work on the internet as soon as you've created it.

However, you could discover that someone has copied your work and sells it without honouring you. It's not always easy to prove copyright ownership without proof of registration.

That's why we always advise you to FIRST register your copyright BEFORE you make it public.

Is my copyright valid internationally?

Yes, your copyright is valid in nearly all the countries of the world. It is valid in the 178 countries who are signatories of the "Berne Convention for the Protection of Literary and Artistic Works".

Why Choose Copyright House?

By registering your copyright with Copyright House, you will have an independent third-party helping you prove your copyright ownership.

One of the many benefits of registering your copyright with Copyright House is that we actually hold a genuine copy of your work. In the case of an infringement, we not only have the data to prove that you have registered the work in question, but we also have evidence to back it up.

At Copyright House we provide a dedicated secure server for your uploaded files, your files are quickly moved from the server and stored in fire-proof data safes. Copyright is valid in 178 countries worldwide. To find out even more reasons why you should register your work with Copyright House, please visit our why choose Copyright House page.

Can I register anything I want, e.g. logos, manuscripts, images etc?

Yes, you can register logos, manuscripts and images. However, if you would like to protect a name which you may have in the logo, then you would need a trademark for that.

When are affidavits and certificates issued?

An affidavit is an official document signed in the presence of a Commissioner of Oaths and a Solicitor. In the case of infringement of your registered copyright we will, in the event of a court case, provide an affidavit * Terms and Conditions Apply

Immediately after every uploaded file in your secure upload area you can download the particular certificate of registration for that file.

The certificate prints the following details:

  1. Name of the registrant
  2. Company name (if applicable)
  3. Username
  4. Title of the registered work
  5. File name
  6. File size
  7. Registration ID
  8. Date and time of registration
  9. Security code
  10. Other information about the registered work




Frederique Patterson, Poet UK

I am so pleased to have found Copyright House, and although a lot of my work was done years ago, at least now I have peace of mind knowing that my work is safe and my rights protected. It is a sound financial investment, because it is not just about the here and now, it is about your peace of mind for the future too. Ideas are dynamic, what is relevant for tomorrow may not be relevant for today. Plus, I am grateful for the time, help and guidance which Copyright House has provided.

Sebastian Galassi Composer, Finland

What can I say, I am pleased with Copyright House for now my work is safe, with all the company's care behind it. After their service, there isn't a musician in the UK who wouldn't trust their work to their seal of quality. When looking back over the years I've spent with them, I can say that I am proud to have taken out the unlimited registrations pack - for one good turn deserves an other. They are a real boon!

Tara Della Hopley Writer UK

I joined Copyright House because it is very clear and concise and laid out nicely making it easy to understand and simple to use. That's what I like! For me the Five Year Subscription Package seems just right at this stage, and nice and manageable. And the fact that one can simply renew the package for a set fee, without any upheaval is great! Also the fees seem reasonable and one gets a good package which equals value for money. Thanks again!

 Stefano Marchesotti Writer, Italy

After using your service once again today, I would like to express with all sincerity my highest compliments. Your service is efficient, convenient, simple and particularly economical. With a really small annual amount you provide a complete and efficient service, up to the highest expectations. Well done! It is a great pleasure to find a service in a such a perfect blend of competence, honesty and courtesy.

Nisal Karunaratne, Australia

I thoroughly appreciate the time you gave for enlightening me on how it all works, I did not take a second for granted. Thank you. I now feel compelled to work as hard and as often as possible……I did not feel that way before copyright house. My creativity is now uninhibited, knowing that my work is protected because of the incredible security and service your company provides. Once again, I emphasize that I hope your... Read More

Registering my works with copyrighthouse was one of my best decisions I ever made - It is great value for money and the payment scheme which I used made registering even easier. The team was also personally very helpful when I had a few questions about my certificates. ( which again are a great idea) Anyway just wanted to thank you again for your very professional service and site - I plan to start writing again shortly and the first thing I will do is register any new works - Best wishes for the future of Copyrighthouse and many thanks again.

Iain Stringer Composer, London.

It seemed to go very well and easy. My first 40 files uploaded and certificates received. I'm a HAPPY man! Thank you

Andrew Joel, Joel Furniture, Lawrence Restorations of Nottingham

I searched for help in protecting my designs and work on google. I had to do something quickly as the next day I was due to visit a foundry to ask them to make prototypes of a design for a chair leg that I had spent many hours perfecting. I was concerned that my designs had no protection at all and I wanted to make anyone who had them think twice before contemplating copying them in any way. When I found your website I knew that I did not need to look any further and that I had found the help and back up that I needed. I was also delighted... Read More

 Miroslav Tanev Composer, Germany

Thank you and your whole team a lot for your service! I feel very excited having made this step and I feel very delighted by the fact that is so easy and comfortable to do it.
