Many authors of original works prefer not to register their work with the copyright office under their real name and choose to use a pseudo-name instead. If you are such an author, keep these points in mind: 1) You are not required to provide your legal name to obtain registration of your work with the Copyright Office; 2) but the length of time for which your work is protected will vary depending on whether or not you use your name. In particular, Copyrights obtained with the author’s real name receive copyright protection for the shorter period of 95 years from publication or 120 years from creation, while works registered under the author’s real name receive copyright for the author’s life plus 70 years; 3) an author who uses a pseudo-name to register a work can provide hIs/her real name at a later time.
