Copyright Process: Entry 1

Two days ago, I went onto the US Copyright Office’s website and registered for eCo, the online copyright registration service. Literally in less than half an hour, I’d filled out the forms, completed the payment ($35 for online literary work submission) and even uploaded the files involved in the copyright.

The case was open within 24-hours.

I’m still waiting, but I want to let you all know how quick and easy it is to do these forms. I took a look at the print form as well, just to see, and I really encourage you do to it online. It’s a lot more clear, and you can even indicate that you want to be contacted by phone or email about the copyright, whatever you prefer.

Like I said, quick and easy, and not at all painful.

Seriously, these guys should teach the other government agencies how to do forms (cough, IRS, cough).

Also, if you haven’t checked out my novella yet, I really want to encourage you to at least go to my Smashwords page and check out the description. If it’s not your taste, that’s cool, but it’s a quick read, and I’ve even put up a coupon for you guys in the announcement of publication on this blog! (That makes it $1.60; if that’s still too expensive, drop me a message and I can work something out, because I really want to share this with you all).
