How Much does a Copyright Cost?

A copyright within the U.S.A. is free; however, in order to register your copyright, you must pay a filing fee to the U.S. Copyright office–if you file online, it’s $35; if you use a paper form sent through the mail, the fee is $50. No matter what format you use to register, you must send in a copy of the work you want to register. You can find more information here:
