What do I get when I register my copyright?

You get a certificate of registration when your photos have been registered.

“When … [the] legal and formal requirements of this title have been met, the Register shall register the claim and issue to the applicant a certificate of registration under the seal of the Copyright Office.’
U.S. Code, Title 17 §410(a)

“With either online or paper applications, you can expect:

  • a letter, telephone call or email from a Copyright Office staff member if further information is needed or
  • a certificate of registration indicating that the work has been registered, or if the application cannot be accepted, a letter explaining why it has been rejected

U.S. Copyright Office, Circular 1
