 Sebastian Galassi, UK Composer"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.

tara della hopley 150x105"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.

stefano marchesotti 150x105"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.

frederique patterson 150x107"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.

 

 

 

Copyright Questions

Why register your work?

Registering your work with Copyright House gives you physical 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, you have objective proof of your registration.

What if someone copies my work?

If somebody publishes your 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 illegally.

If someone infringes your 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 works with Copyright House?

  • Your files are uploaded through a secure private server using a DigiCert SHA2 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 very affordable subscription packages allow UNLIMITED REGISTRATIONS at any time during the subscription.
  • There are no hidden charges, you just pay for your subscription and are allowed to register as many works and updates as you need.
  • We issue a free certificate of registration for each registered work and provide a free certified affidavit (worth £150) if necessary.
  • We issue official DMA 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, but it's 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 sold 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 work 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 174 countries who are signatories of the "Berne Convention for the Protection of Literary and Artistic Works".

How does Copyright House compare to other Copyright Services?

You may have come across other copyright registration services which appear to be too good to be true. They can't live up to the promises they make. At Copyright House we don't make false claims. We don't take advantage of people's ignorance of copyright law, or pretend to be the official governmental copyright service. There is no official governmental copyright registration service in the UK. Some websites may claim to have the official power to remove copied work from publication. They don't, however, have this power.

Why Choose Copyright House?

By registering your copyright with Copyright House, you'll 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 your copyright of the work and the date when you registered the work in question, but we also have physical evidence to back it up.
At Copyright House we provide a dedicated secure server for your uploaded files, your files are quickly removed from our server and stored in fire-proof data safes, your copyright will be valid in 174 countries worldwide, one fee is all you pay, the list goes on and on. 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 everything 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 trade mark for that.

How about the affidavit and certificates?

In the case of infringement of your work, if needed, Copyright House will provide, free of charge, an affidavit. An affidavit is an official document signed in the presence of a Commissioner of Oaths and a Solicitor. Immediately after every uploaded file in your secure upload area you can download the particular certificate of registration for that file. The certificate shows: your name, company name (if applicable), username, title of registered work, file name, file size, registration ID, date and time of registration, security code and any other information you have given about the registered work.
