Is there an advantage to registering a work with the Copyright Office?

If you wish to initiate a claim of copyright infringement against someone who used your work without your permission, you'll need to reference a registration at the Copyright Office. If you prevail in a lawsuit, a judge may cause the defendant to pay punitive damages, which means that you may be awarded money in excess of what you lost due to infringement or what you spent defending your case.
