The U.S. Copyright Office, copyright.gov, performs many functions relating to U.S. Copyright law. One of its main functions has always been to register works for copyright protection. Because of the registration function, the Copyright Office also answers hundreds of thousands of inquiries by phone and email, performs search and retrieval functions for customers involved in research and litigation, and serves a substantial number of in-person visitors.
