Registration is recommended for a number of reasons.

Many choose to register their works because they wish to have the facts of their copyright on the public record and have a certificate of registration.

Registered works may be eligible for statutory damages and attorney's fees in successful litigation.

Finally, if registration occurs within 5 years of publication, it is considered prima facie evidence in a court of law.
