Copyright registration goes online

The Peruvian National Institute for the Defense of Competition and Protection of Intellectual Property (INDECOPI) is promoting the online application for copyright.

Image result for registration onlineThe ‘Virtual Registry of Works’ is a friendly platform, it is accessible anywhere and at any time (it operates 24hrs). INDECOPI notes that the system allows registration of works in 24 hours if the application does not present any observations. Payment can be done also online by credit card or through the Banco de la Nacion.

There is an online tutorial on how to use this platform (here).

While registering a work is not mandatory in Peru, it is highly recommended to do so to facilitate prove of entitlement and date of creation.
