What does it mean to "register" a copyright?

There are many copyright databases in the world. Most databases exist to facilitate license transactions, such as the databases maintained by performing rights societies. Music publishers register works at these collective copyright societies. It's also possible to register original works directly with the Copyright Office of the U.S. Federal government, but this is not required.
