How to register your “short online literary works” with the U.S. Copyright Office

The Copyright Office will host a webinar on July 15, 2020, at 2 p.m. eastern time on the new group registration option for short online literary works—for example, blog entries, social media posts, and online articles

Under this option, applicants may register up to fifty short online literary works with one application and one filing fee. To qualify, each work must contain at least 50 but no more than 17,500 words. The works must be written by the same individual, or co-written by the same individuals, and each writer must be named as the copyright claimant or claimants for each work. The works must be first published online within a three-calendar-month period. If the Office registers the claim, the registration will cover the text in each work as a separate work of authorship.
