How Do I Update my Address with the Copyright Office?
Question: I have registered multiple songs with the Copyright Office but I’ve recently moved. Do I need to update my address? If so, how? Will I need to update each registration separately or can I update them all at once?
Response: You are not required to update your address. However, should you choose to do so, the only way to update your address is to file a Supplementary Registration with the required $130 filing fee for each separate application.
In the new electronic registration system that the Office is beginning to develop, the Office intends to allow claimants to update their contact information more easily and for a significantly lower fee.
