1105 Group Registration

1105 Group Registration

The U.S. Copyright Office has established administrative procedures that allow an applicant to register multiple works in certain limited categories with one application and one filing fee. This procedure is known as a group registration. Where applicable, this may be the most convenient and cost effective way to register multiple works of authorship.

Applicants must decide whether group registration is the optimal means of registering the works at issue. Group registration options have particular requirements, and in some cases, limitations. For example, a registration for a group of related works provides less detailed information about the various works in the group. Applicants should weigh the costs and benefits of these various options in determining whether to register a work on an individual basis or as a group.
