The purpose of the website is to facilitate the registration of Copyrights with the United States Copyright Office.
On our website you can prepare and file copyrights and we provide general information about copyrights. We are not a law office. Because of this, we are not able to provide legal advice.

By providing your materials, you are providing the Website and us with non-exclusive licenses to read those materials and to use, reproduce, store, and display those materials for the purpose of registering your copyrights with the United States Copyright Office.
Managing Your Account
You are required to create an account to access certain parts of the Website. It is your responsibility to ensure that all such information provided by you is accurate and current. You cannot, under any circumstances, register for a second profile or account or use someone else's profile or account in order to access or use the Website.
We assume that users accessing the Website through your Login ID are You because sharing Login IDs is prohibited on the Website. In case someone using your Login ID accesses the Website without your authorization, please notify us immediately at firstname.lastname@example.org. You alone are responsible for any access to the Website by persons using your Login ID.
Content You Create
In the future, we may authorize the publication of content submitted by you (hereinafter “User Generated Content” or UGC”). In no event shall UGC:
- Violate another's intellectual property or proprietary rights, including copyrights, copyrights, trade secrets, etc.;
- Breach the privacy, publicity rights, or any other rights of third parties;

- Possibly harm our organization, parent organization, affiliates, advertisers, or other parties.
UGC that violates one or more of these restrictions is not obliged to be removed in any way. Users who violate these terms may have their UGC removed, or their accounts may be terminated, but we are not obligated to do so. Any harm caused by UGC is not our responsibility.

Our site may contain links to third-party websites, which are not owned, controlled, or operated by us.

Viewing and Searching Data
The information on this website may be based on government records. Despite our best efforts, we cannot guarantee the accuracy or timeliness of the information.
You may receive reminders from us regarding deadlines related to your copyright registrations as part of our services. Reminders are only intended for informational purposes. Depending on your specific situation, you should consult with an attorney if you have any questions regarding when applicable deadlines are due. Notifications do not provide legal advice or interpretations of the law based on information specific to you or your copyrights.
Forms and Disclaimers
Unlike law firms and legal service providers, we are a website platform that helps create forms. You will be given a form document that includes information you submit or is pulled from records You provide. This form will be used to create your copyright registration which will be mailed to you by the United States Copyright Office.
You cannot obtain legal advice from us since we do not serve as an attorney or law firm. As our customer service representatives are not attorneys, they are not able to answer legal questions. Additionally, since our customer service representatives do not occupy an attorney-client relationship, there is no need for you to disclose confidential information to them. Despite our ability to assist you in preparing your own copyright application, we cannot act as your counsel of record in filing it. Additionally, we cannot provide you with any legal advice pertaining to your particular copyright.
If we find inconsistencies, errors, or other clerical errors in the information you provide us, we may, but are not obligated to, review it. No legal advice, opinions, or recommendations about your rights, remedies, defenses, options, choices, or strategies, or how to apply the law to the facts of your specific case are offered at any time. You will not make a purchase from us if you believe you have received any legal advice or services from us or the Website.
By purchasing, downloading, and or using an online or offline form or document, you acknowledge and understand that neither legal advice nor the practice of law is occurring. In addition, you acknowledge and agree that we are not able to customize each form or document and any applicable instructions or guidance to meet your specific needs.
OUR WEBSITE RETAINS YOUR CREDIT CARD INFORMATION SO THAT WE CAN CHARGE YOU FOR SERVICES AND MAY BE USED TO PAY THE GOVERNMENT FILING FEES AFTER YOU APPROVE OR HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY TO APPROVE THE APPLICATION.
Updated Features and Services
The website may occasionally be updated with new features and services (for example, releasing new tools). The Terms of Service shall also apply to any new features or services.
Liability Limitations and Disclaimers

As part of this release, you hereby waive California Civil Code Section 1542 (and any similar provision in any other jurisdiction) which states: "A general release does not extend to claims that the creditor does not know or suspect to exist in his favor at the time of executing the release, which, if known by him, would have materially affected his settlement with the debtor."
Any of the services provided on this Website may be altered or discontinued without notice at any time. Our right to terminate this Agreement at our discretion and for any reason without notice also remains unaffected. Upon any violation of these terms and conditions, this Agreement will automatically terminate. Upon termination, access to the Website will be immediately terminated. Sections relating to the Disclaimers of Warranty, Limitation of Liability, Indemnity, and Dispute Resolution, as well as any terms and conditions related to your Content, shall survive termination of this Agreement.
You agree to indemnify, defend and hold harmless CopyRight, its officers, directors, employees, agents and third parties, for any losses, costs, liabilities and expenses (including reasonable attorney's fees) relating to or arising out of your use of or inability to use the Website or services, any UGC made by you, your violation of any terms of this Agreement or your violation of any rights of a third party, or your violation of any applicable laws, rules or regulations. CopyRight reserves the right, at its own cost, to assume the exclusive defense and control of any matter otherwise subject to indemnification by you, in which event you will fully cooperate with CopyRight in asserting any available defenses.
In the event the parties are not able to resolve any dispute between them arising out of or concerning these Terms and Conditions, or any provisions hereof, whether in contract, tort, or otherwise at law or in equity for damages or any other relief, then such dispute shall be resolved only by final and binding arbitration pursuant to the Federal Arbitration Act (“FAA”), conducted by a single neutral arbitrator and administered by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”), or a similar arbitration service selected by the parties, in a location mutually agreed upon by the parties. The arbitrator's award shall be final, and judgment may be entered upon it in any court having jurisdiction. In the event that any legal or equitable action, proceeding or arbitration arises out of or concerns these Terms and Conditions, the prevailing party shall be entitled to recover its costs and reasonable attorney's fees. The parties agree to arbitrate all disputes and claims in regards to these Terms and Conditions or any disputes arising as a result of these Terms and Conditions, whether directly or indirectly, including Tort claims that are a result of these Terms and Conditions. The parties agree that the American Arbitration Association governs the interpretation and enforcement of this provision. The entire dispute, including the scope and enforceability of this arbitration provision shall be determined by the Arbitrator. This arbitration provision shall survive the termination of these Terms and Conditions.
Any arbitration under these Terms and Conditions will take place on an individual basis; class arbitrations and class/representative/collective actions are not permitted. THE PARTIES AGREE THAT A PARTY MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN EACH INDIVIDUAL’S CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PUTATIVE CLASS, COLLECTIVE AND/ OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING, SUCH AS IN THE FORM OF A PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL ACTION AGAINST THE OTHER. Further, unless both you and CopyRight agree otherwise, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person's claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding.
A JURY TRIAL OR DISCOVERY WILL NOT BE PERMITTED, WITHOUT THE EXPRESS CONSENT OF EITHER PARTY, IN THE ARBITRATION PROCEEDINGS. THE AAA CODE OF PROCEDURE PROVIDES THE ONLY TIME FOR DISCOVERY.
This Agreement shall be interpreted, enforced, and determined exclusively by the arbitrator, whose award shall be binding and final. Judgment on the arbitration award may be entered in any court having jurisdiction. In the event of either: i) the termination of this Agreement; or ii) bankruptcy of any of the parties, this arbitration provision shall survive. The remaining portions of this arbitration provision will remain valid and enforceable if any part of it is deemed invalid or unenforceable.
NO CLASS ACTION, REPRESENTATIVE ACTION, OR PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL ACTIONS WILL BE PERMITTED, NOR WILL ANY JOINDER OR COMBINATION OF ANY CLAIM WITH ANOTHER PERSON'S CLAIM OR A CLASS OF CLAIMANTS.
IN 30 DAYS, YOU CAN WITHDRAW FROM BINDING ARBITRATION AND CLASS ACTION WAIVER. WE REQUIRE THAT YOU LET US KNOW IN WRITING IF YOU DO NOT WISH TO BE BOUND BY THE CLASS ACTION WAIVER AND BINDING ARBITRATION IN THIS SECTION WITHIN 30 DAYS OF YOUR ACCEPTANCE OF THIS AGREEMENT. PLEASE SEND YOUR WRITTEN NOTIFICATION BY E-MAIL TO REGISTRATION@COPYRIGHTREGISTRATION.IO, WITH THE SUBJECT LINE 'OPT-OUT' AND FEATURING: (1) YOUR NAME, (2) YOUR ADDRESS, AND (3) A CLEAR STATEMENT THAT YOU DO NOT WISH TO RESOLVE DISPUTES WITH US THROUGH ARBITRATION.
The AAA's Commercial Arbitration Rules will govern any arbitration. If your dispute is worth less than $75,000, you will also need to follow its Supplementary Procedures for Consumer-Related Disputes. Arbitration will be conducted in Honolulu County, Hawaii, United States. We agree to conduct arbitration only in Honolulu County, Hawaii, United States. You may request a telephonic or in-person hearing by following the AAA rules. Any hearing with a value under $10,000 will be conducted via telephone, unless the arbitrator deems it necessary to conduct an in-person hearing. In an arbitration proceeding, your individual damages may be the same as those a court would award. Arbitrators can award declaratory or injunctive relief only to individuals, and only as needed to satisfy each claim individually. No provision in this article prevents CopyRight from asking the arbitrator to award CopyRight all costs of the arbitration, including any Administrative Fees paid on your behalf.
The Dispute will be decided by a court if either party elects to arbitrate or if a court does not mandate arbitration for whatever reason the parties choose to arbitrate, without either party having a right to trial by jury. All court proceedings, including any attempts to compel arbitration or lawsuits initially filed by third parties, arising out of or related to this Agreement or use of the Sites shall be decided exclusively by a court of competent jurisdiction in Honolulu County, Hawaii, United States.
