1103.4 Completing the Application

1103.4 Completing the Application


This Section provides guidance for completing an application to register multiple works with the unit of publication option.


Applicants should inform the U.S. Copyright Office that they are seeking to register a number of self-contained works under the unit of publication option. When completing the online application, the applicant should provide this information in the Note to Copyright Office. When completing a paper application, the applicant should provide this information in a cover letter.


If the registration specialist determines that the component works are eligible for registration under the unit of publication option, he or she will add an annotation, such as: “Basis for registration: Unit of publication.” This statement will appear on the certificate of registration and the online public record for the claim.


If the specialist determines that the component works are not eligible for registration under this option, he or she may communicate with the applicant to clarify the scope of the claim, ask the applicant to submit a separate application for each work, or refuse registration.
