Navigate Copyright Laws with Kiffane Stahle!

Photographers: How to Navigate the Online Copyright Registration System

This workshop will walk you through the online copyright registration system and you will leave ready to submit an application to the U.S. Copyright Office.

You know that you should be registering your copyrights with the U.S. Copyright Office. Maybe you've tried and the legal jargon tripped you up. Or maybe you've done it but weren't 100% sure that you prepared the application correctly. Or maybe the 1990s website made you bonkers.

Fear no more, this workshop specifically designed for photographers will guide you step-by-step through the process and will help you in preparing an application for submittal. We'll also talk about a couple of tricks within the system available only to photographers.

The workshop will also cover common pitfalls, breakdown the legal jargon, and talk about simplifying your workflow to make registration a regular occurrence.

During the workshop we will walk through the application together. As we do so, you can enter your personal information as we go along and at the end of the workshop you'll only need to pay your application fee and upload your work to have a batch of your photographs protected!

The workshop will be conducted online-only via Google Hangout so you must have access to this platform to participate.

Completing a couple of other steps will allow you to get the most value out of the workshop:
  • Registering as a user in the eCO system. If you need to register, click here.
  • Filling out the PDF sent upon registration to gather the remaining information you'll need to complete the application.
  • Gathering the materials you want to register in one of the approved file formats. (The PDF sent to you will have best practices on how to gather and batch these materials.)

Once you register for the workshop, I will send you the PDF and a link to the Google Event where the Hangout will occur. On the day of the event, you will login via Google Hangout and click the "Join Hangout" button to participate.

Space is limited to nine participants, to allow participants to have their individual questions and concerns answered.

If you have any questions, please contact me at kiffanie@stahlelaw.com.
