AIPLA supports and appreciates the Copyright Office’s efforts to modernize the copyright registration system. In particular, we believe that a robust public record of registrations will benefit authors and copyright owners by enabling them to better and more easily receive the economic benefits of their creative works, thus incentivizing registration. An easily searchable database of recordations would enable users to understand not only what has been registered, but also the past and current owners of registrations, and associated rights and permission information.
