Copyrighting with Easy Song
Copyrighting fees are calculated based on the number and types of claims required for your project. Generally, separate fees are required for each work you want to register. In some cases, we may be able to reduce your fees by including multiple works together on the same filing. Our website will automatically calculate the number of filings required based on your project details and reduce your fees when possible, so that you can view your total cost before checking out.
In addition to our $35 Service Fee, each copyright filing requires a Federal Filling Fee of $85. All of this money goes to the U.S. Copyright Office; for this reason, membership discounts and credits do not apply to federal filing fees.
When filing multiple songs, separate fees are required (our service fee + federal filing fee) for each unique author combination AND anytime songs are submitted to Easy Song on a different date, such as adding a song to an existing project at a later date.
For any song that has been released (defined by the USCO as "publication", made available to the public prior to filing), separate fees are required from unreleased works, and separate fees are required for each individual composition or sound recordings (if you choose to register them). Note that this limitation does not apply to unreleased works, where claims on multiple works can sometimes be made together without incurring additional fees.
