Paper Registrations Not Accepted

Please be advised that effective June 24th, 2014 the WGC discontinued intellectual property registration of paper copies of materials, and is phasing out storage of paper registration materials. This notice relates to paper registrations only and does not affect any electronic registrations. We will continue to honor and store existing paper registrations of scripts and other materials at our secure offsite storage facility until after they expire at our discretion.

Anyone who has one or more valid (not expired) paper registrations may choose to either provide payment to withdraw the material and have a copy mailed to them, or create an account and register the material electronically on our online registration service.  Please contact Terry Mark at t.mark@wgc.ca if you have any questions regarding this service change.
