The US legal position
While the US have signed up to the Berne Convention, the US legal situation is unique with regards to registration (click here for more information of the Berne Convention The US Copyright Office, managed by the Library of Congress, states that 'before an infringement suit may be filed in a (US) court, registration (with the US Copyright Office) is necessary for works of U.S. origin'. (Source: - July 2004).
Therefore, if you are a US based citizen we recommend you also register your work with the US Copyright Office.
