A new registration tool for copyright owners and others trying to register copyright holders has been launched by the Electronic Frontier Foundation.
The new registration system is called MPESA, which stands for “Mean Strengths and Opportunities Act.”MPESA allows anyone who is a registered copyright owner to register for copyright.
The registration process requires the user to provide the name, email address, and phone number of the registered copyright holder.
This information is used to track copyright holders’ registrations, track the progress of their registration, and track the registration status of new copyright owners.
The registration process is open to anyone who has a copyright and has been registered in the United States.
It can take up to 30 days for a registered owner to become a registered user, but can take anywhere from three weeks to six months for an individual to become registered.
In addition to the registration information, the registration process also includes an optional “Means of Copyright” section that explains how the registration is going to be handled, such as whether a copyright holder is going through a “licensing” process or whether a new copyright owner is registered.MPESA is a key piece of the Copyright Act, which provides for copyright protections to protect copyright owners’ intellectual property rights, and it has been used by thousands of copyright owners around the world.
The Electronic Frontier Alliance has lobbied the Copyright Office to make the registration system official, and MPESA is one of the tools being considered.
The EFF and other organizations have filed a lawsuit against the Copyright Administration and the Copyright Registration Agency in the Federal District Court of the District of Columbia.
In a statement, EFF Executive Director Corynne McSherry said:We are pleased that the Copyright Agency has launched MPESA to assist copyright owners in the process of registering for the law’s new registration.
We look forward to continuing to work with the Copyright Service on this important tool.
MPESA should be a boon for copyright holders and others in the creative economy, as it helps them better understand how their work is being protected.
We hope it will lead to more legal protections for the creative community and greater participation by users in the copyright marketplace.
