Copyright Wizard Electrifies the Copyright Registration Process
FOSTER CITY, CA - May 1, 2002 - The Copyright Website, the leading
Internet portal for copyright information, today announced the launch of the
Copyright Wizard, a web-based copyright registration service that gives
Internet content creators a way to submit copyright registration applications
The Copyright Wizard utilizes a registration engine and ontology that tailors
questions to the specific work being registered, allowing simpler applications
to be completed with fewer questions. The Copyright Website takes care of
completing the appropriate copyright application form, burning a copy of the
website to CD for deposit, and submitting the completed application to the
United States Copyright Office.
"We are excited to announce the launch of the Copyright Wizard," said Benedict
O'Mahoney, President of Copyright Website LLC. "This is a truly quick
and painless web-based copyright registration service that allows people to
register a copyright application for their online assets with the United States
Copyright Office in a matter of minutes. We heard from people who are online
that they wanted a way to register their works online."
To submit a copyright application, a content owner only needs to answer a few
questions from the Copyright Wizard. The simpler the application, the fewer
questions. If the content owner is registering a website, he need only input
the domain name for a website.
Based on the interview with the applicant, the Copyright Wizard does the
following: 1) completes the appropriate Copyright Registration form; 2)
verifies that the Copyright Registration form does not contain any logical
inconsistencies; 3) captures the website or digital assets; 4) converts the
website or digital assets to an appropriate format; 5) burns the converted
files to a Compact Disc. Copyright Website LLC then submits the
entire package along with all required fees and deposits to the Copyright
Office for registration.
