If the applicant intends to register a revised version of a published website, the applicant generally should provide the month, day, and year that the revised content was first posted on that site.


Example:


• Zeke Quarry operates a website called “Internal Revolution,” which contains a compilation of public domain photographs from the Civil War. Users may download content from the website if they pay a subscription fee. Zeke launched the site on December 20, 2004, and he intends to register the selection of images that he added to the site on January 1, 2013, June 30, 2013, and December 31, 2013. Zeke submits a separate application for each batch of images, and he states that these updates were first published on January 1, 2013, June 30, 2013, and December 31, 2013. If each compilation contains a sufficient amount of creative expression, the registration specialist will register these claims.
