How to Find Your Copyright Office Registration Listings

Don't take this to the bank -- the lawyers and plaintiffs supposedly working in your interests keep throwing curveballs. The associational plaintiff organizations told everyone we didn't need to have primary documentation of our copyright registrations, only the easily-verified registration numbers themselves. But now the mass mailing of defect notices by the claims administrator is saying otherwise.

Anyway, for those of you who don't want to wait and see how the whole confusing big picture plays out, and simply want to cure your alleged claims defects right now, and one of the alleged claims defects is lack of registration documentation, we're pretty sure that a printout from the Copyright Office website showing the registration is sufficient.
