Who is behind Sentry?

Sentry is brought to you by the team at Rightsify. Rightsify is one of the world’s largest independent music copyright holders with a library of more than 250,000 songs. We made sure all of our copyrights were registered successfully and in 2021 we started offering this to other rights holders now with Sentry, a professional, cost-effective, and easy to use copyright registration service available to any copyright holder worldwide.

What are the benefits of copyright registration?

There are numerous benefits to copyright registration, most importantly:

1. If your work is infringed, you will need proof of registration to file a lawsuit.

2. Companies you work with whether it be publishers, distributors, agencies, or record labels may require proof of copyright registration before they enter into a contract with you

3. With your Copyright Certificate, you will have permanent proof that you are the owner of your works.

How long does it take?

Filling out the copyright registration form on our site will only take you a few minutes and you will receive an instant confirmation from Sentry once submitted. For government processing, it currently it takes 2-3 months for your copyright to be officially certified by the US copyright office. However, you will receive a confirmation code immediately after submitting your copyright which you can use to track the status of your copyright.

Can I register more than one type of copyright?

Yes, you can register any type of copyright. However, each type will need to be under a different entry. You can register multiple works under the same group registration. For example, to save money you can register a full album of music or a collection of photos as one group registration instead of paying for each individual copyright separately.

Can I register my trademark with Sentry?

Unfortunately not. Copyrights and Trademarks while sounding similar, are very different things. We suggest engaging the services of a lawyer for Trademarks.

What if I have questions or my registration has issues?

Feel free to contact us anytime. Whether you have questions prior to submitting your registration or want to check on the status, we are here to help.
