Copyright is a form of legal protection provided by the laws of the United States (Title 17, U. S. Code) to authors of literary, dramatic, musical, artistic, and other works. The United States Copyright Office, located within the Library of Congress and under the direction of the Register of Copyrights, administers the Copyright Law; advises Congress and government agencies on legal and policy matters; provides international representation on copyright issues; administers the national copyright registration system; provides collections materials to the Library through voluntary registration and mandatory deposit programs; records documents relating to copyright chain of title; administers statutory license provisions of the law, including collecting and distributing royalties; maintains the world’s largest database of copyright public records; and provides information and reference services to the public.

Within the United States Copyright Office (USCO), The Office of Public Records and Repositories (PRR) is responsible for preserving, maintaining, and servicing copyright-related records in physical and digital formats. Staff of the Office of Public Records and Repositories retrieve materials for court cases, perform searches and write search reports based on registered materials and other copyright records, provide certified and non-certified copies of copyright deposits, additional certificates and other copyright records, maintain the official records of the office, and respond to inspection requests from members of the public or Congress.
