The Copyright Office has announced its new system of electronic recording. Under the Copyright Act, the U.S. Copyright Office accepts certain types of documents for filing and indexing into the Office’s public records. There are three primary types of documents that may be submitted for recordation: transfers of copyright ownership, other documents pertaining to a copyright, and notices of termination. Once indexed by the Office, recorded documents become available for inspection by the general public.

The new pilot program allows recordation of assignments but does not yet allow recordings of notices of termination.
The Recordation System has many features and benefits:
self-service account and organization management online payment via digital certificate and numbered document available online online status tracking centralized messaging center for correspondence notifications and alerts for key events easy search of submissions faster processing time than paper submission bulk upload of works indexing information
