Obtaining Copyright / ISBN

 

 

 


 

Please Note:

In the United States, both the copyright and ISBN must be registered by the author in order for an author to maintain the rights to their book. To register your copyright online please go to www.copyright.gov (this is a $35.00 fee).

Although there are several companies and individuals providing ISBN numbers online, there is only one legitimate supplier of ISBNs to residents of the United States. Using an ISBN supplied by any source other than the official agency will result in a loss of the marketing rights to your book. To order an ISBN number, please go to www.isbn.org. The cost of a single ISBN is $125.00, while 10 numbers (to use on 10 separate book titles) is $295.00. The general rule is that is best to order the 10 ISBN numbers if you are planning to produce 2 or more titles in the future. The ISBN numbers do not expire over time.

Obtaining Copyright / ISBN / Bar Code for your Book

 

 

Traditionally, copyright, ISBN, CIP, and Library Of Congress information is printed on the back of the full title page of every book. This page is commonly referred to as the Copyright Page. At Art Bookbindery, we will ensure that your copyright page contains the proper information before going to print. We will also ensure that the information is typeset according to international law so that your book may be distributed and sold internationally. In order to simplify the process of obtaining a copyright, ISBN, CIP (Canada) and Library of Congress control number (U.S.) for your book, we have provided links and addresses to these sources for our customers located in both the U.S. and Canada. 

 

We feel it is in the best interest of all writers to secure proper copyright protection for their book. We also encourage the use of an ISBN number, especially if you are requiring a bar code for the sale of your book, as the bar code design is based on the ISBN system of numbers. A standard bar code design for your book  is available through us at a cost of $43.50. This is a one-time fee. The bar code image is often required when marketing your books through local area booksellers. For complete information, please refer to the following sources:
