  2. Your application will be reviewed and verified (Your application will be reviewed and verified to ensure eligibility for inclusion on to the copyright register. This process typically takes between 2 and 5 days, but may take longer during times of high demand.)
  3. Response (You will receive a response along with a unique copyright application number, either accepting your application, recommending alterations, requesting further information or rejecting your application.)
  4. Action & Completion (Should your application be successful, you will then be required to pay the registration fees.
