1107.2 (B) Collective Work Authorship
A collective work contains two different types of authorship:
• The compilation authorship in creating each issue, which involves selecting, coordinating, and/or arranging a number of separate and independent works and assembling them into a collective whole; and
• The authorship in the separate and independent works included within each issue, such as articles, photographs, illustrations, or other contributions.
As a general rule, a registration for a collective work covers the authorship involved in creating the issue as a whole. It also covers the individual contributions contained within the collective work if they were first published in that issue, and if they are fully owned by the copyright claimant when the claim is submitted.
