"What can I say, I am pleased with Copyright House. Now my work is safe with 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 be a lifetime subscriber. They are a real boon!" - Sebastian Galassi, Composer.
"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!" - Tara Della Hopley, Writer.
"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." - Stefano Marchesotti, Writer, Italy.
"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, because 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 the company has provided." - Frederique Patterson, Poet.

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.
