Cosynd offers A2IM members free catalog assessments to ensure your copyrights are protected

Cosynd makes the complicated, but necessary work of establishing ownership of your content easy and affordable. Using Cosynd, A2IM Members can now automate copyright agreements and seamlessly register those copyrights with the U.S. Copyright Office for all of their content assets, such as sound recordings, compositions, lyrics, videos, imagery, literature, and more, at significantly discounted rates.

Today we’re excited to share that Cosynd is offering FREE catalog assessments, on top of discounted rates on all of Cosynd’s services that will ensure your copyrights are protected.

Learn more about each of the benefits available to you as a member.

$25  • Per Registration + filing fees — that’s 80% less than similar services 
We encourage you to include copyright registration as part of your release strategy — you can’t file a lawsuit, take part in a class action, or receive statutory damages of $150,000 plus attorney fees per infringement unless you have registered with the U.S. Copyright Office beforehand. 

There is no substitute for registering with the U.S. Copyright Office, such as “poor man’s copyright”, affidavit services, collection societies, or other types of copyright databases

Seamlessly register your copyrights and let Cosynd handle the preparation, review, and e-filing for you. Get started here: https://cosynd.com/partner/a2im
