Has anyone here registered a site with the U.S. Copyright Office?

How long did it take from the time you submitted the paperwork until you received the response from the Copyright office?

The time varies but I believe it is currently at least 3 and possibly 6 months.

If you filed via eCO:

Login to eCO and click on the blue case number associated with your claim in the Open Cases table at the bottom of the Welcome screen to view the Case Summary associated with the claim.

Wow, that seems like a long time. I'll have to read and see when the registration is legally effective.

With books (as opposed to a website), some of these political authors are churning out new books so fast they can't possibly be waiting 3-6 months just for copyright registration.

Farmboy, what are you trying to do? Are you trying to protect your content or are you trying to protect your website's name?

When a copyright owner files a DMCA notice with an infringer's host, some of those hosts have started asking for a copy of the owner's copyright registration. Having the certificate and being able to send them (or direct them to an online copy of) a scan of this certificate can ease the take-down procedure.

Naturally, "your mileage may vary."
