RegisteredCommons provides secure registration of authorship of creative workings, no matter if it's photography, poetry, a series of mp3 files or an open source software project. If somebody infringes the license associated to your work, your registration helps to prove your authorship.

In order to register your work, you need to sign-up at RegisteredCommons.org. The trust level associated to your work is highest, if you use a personal certificate, such as by CAcert.org. You can choose, which personal data is visible to others. After uploading a release of your work, we generate a hash code and request a secure timestamp from A-cert (third party principle is required by European Digital Signature Laws). You can generate yourself or order a printed and signed certificate, which you may file with your contracts.

The timestamp is stored for 35 years by A-cert. RegisteredCommons stores the hash code for at least 7 years. Your work is being stored by fair-use principles. RegisteredCommons is a service established and provided by a public-private partnership. The public partner, the Vorarlberg University of Applied Sciences, located in the Austrian Alps close to the Swiss and German border, provides infrastructure. Private partners are organised in a co-op. Registered users of the service may also become RegisteredCommons shareholders. The co-op members keep control over the service through their vote in the general assembly.
