Pre-registration is a service intended for certain types of unpublished works that have had a history of prerelease infringement. Its purpose is to preserve the remedies of statutory damages and attorney’s fees for copyright owners of these works when they have been infringed before publication and registration. A pre-registered work must be registered within 3 months after publication. Pre-registration takes place only online, is not a substitute for registration, and is not a guarantee that the Copyright Office will ultimately register the work.
