How To Register Images

The Digital Media Licensing Association (DMLA), a North American trade association representing the interests of the image licensing industry, has compressed a broad range of copyright information into the following Word document. It covers the registration of photos: the history of registration, reasons to register, owner's rights, how to register different types of works, what a registration covers, and protecting your registered works. It also discusses current legislation governing copyrights themselves, including increased interest in online images and their attendant Copyright Management Information. This document was authored by Nancy E. Wolff, counsel to DMLA and the leading authority in the area of image licensing and the law. Document Version: 070627-A.
