IMPROVED COPYRIGHT SEARCH SYSTEM
The Copyright Office has launched a powerful new records search system that accesses more than 20 million digital records of registrations and recorded documents for 1978 to the present. This is a great help for writers wanting to learn the copyright status of books for quoting purposes, or to locate competing titles. The new system allows you to search by title, name, keyword, and registration or document number--or a combination of these. For a tutorial on how to use the system, go to: www.copyright.gov/records.
