Our online registration systems have now been enhanced to support ‘MasterCard SecureCode’ and ‘Verified by Visa’ secure authentication.

These systems (collectively known as ‘3D Secure’) use personal passwords or identity information to further protect card users against unauthorized use. (*Dependant on participating bank and payment service provider)

Security has always been one of the most important principals of our service, this is why we host all our services using our own secure servers and all data submitted via our website is transmitted over secure 256bit https connections.

Online registration continues to gain in popularity

For so many copyright owners it is important to register work quickly and with a minimum amount of fuss. For most, online registration is the ideal solution; work can be submitted at any time of the day or night and is protected immediately.

It perhaps no surprise that since its launch, online registration has consistently gained in popularity, and now accounts for massive *82% of all new registrations. (*figure base on new registrations in August 2007).

Continued improvement

We are very proud that our development team takes a pro-active approach and closely monitors the feedback and experiences of our clients. This knowledge is used to improve our systems, simplify the registration process and reduce confusion for new registrants.

Step by step...

Our registration ‘step by step’ guides have also proved popular, particularly with new users of the service.

Although we try to make the on-line systems as straightforward as possible, we understand that it can seem daunting at first. If you have never registered or updated a work online before, these guides can printed and used as you go through the registration process.
