How to COPYRIGHT a Photograph!

Hey Guys,

Lately at work I have been dealing with the issue of COPYRIGHTING images. This daunting task, is actually FAIRLY SIMPLE.  I’m going to break it down for you—so get excited people!!!

  1. Take an original picture
  2. Read the instructions on the linked form below — it tells you EXACTLY how to fill it out!
  3. Fill out this form: http://www.copyright.gov/forms/formva.pdf
  4. Mail in the FORM w/ a $65 check! or FILE IT ONLINE!

YOU’RE DONE!

If you have MULTIPLE pictures you’d like to copyright them but do not want to pay the fee for each  picture then:

  1.  For the title portion fill in “John Doe’s Collection of Animal Photography Volume 1”
  2. Under pervious names, name each photograph like “Zebra”,  “Zebra in love”, etc.,
  3. Attach the image, if you’re sending it online (jpeg)
  4. Fill out the rest of the form the same way!

Good Luck!

 
P.S. I am NOT  lawyer, nor do I hold myself out to be one. I am just an overly excited law student who loves fashion, food, mainstream culture, Islam, family and friends!
