History

The New York Clipper Registry provided a way for performers and writers to copyright their performances and other works in the early 20th century. Anyone wishing to protect their work would fill out a coupon published in the New York Clipper and send it-along with a copy or description of their act, song, trick, or other works-to the N.Y. Clipper Registry Bureau. Once received, the envelopes were opened and all materials were numbered and stored in envelopes by the Registry Bureau. A Certificate and label of registration were mailed to the submitter to show that their work had been entered into the registry. At any time, the owner could call upon the Registry Bureau to prove that their work was copyrighted.
