(NEW YORK, NY July 06, 2011) RightsFlow, a technology-enabled licensing and royalty service provider, has launched MySpark Copyright, an online copyright registration utility that streamlines the process for content creators and owners to register their works with the United States Copyright Office. Through an easy-to-use interface and fast, intuitive online forms, MySpark Copyright captures the necessary information about the work, author and owner, in three simple steps, and then prepares and submits all required documentation on behalf of the user. Registration is important to all creators not only for the legal protection and compensation it provides in federal court in the case of copyright infringement but also for creators to establish a permanent record of their creation with the national register.
“We’re excited to introduce MySpark Copyright as a dynamic utility for the copyright registration submission process,” said Gideon Kalischer, Director of Web Products. “Our focus is on maximizing efficiencies and cost-savings for our community through innovative product offerings. MySpark Copyright does just that, providing artists, developers, musicians, photographers, and creators of all types with a simple, time-saving, and affordable option to register their intellectual property and protect their work.”
MySpark Copyright is suited for a broad range of created works including literary, performing arts, visual arts, software, and sound recordings. In addition to a simplified submission process, the service also offers the benefits of a responsive and knowledgeable customer support team coupled with a flat-fee standard pricing structure ($85 per submission, inclusive of the U.S. Copyright Office filing fees) that avoids expensive legal fees or the additional complicated add-ons of other third-party vendors.
