1107.6 Completing the Application: Group Registration of Serials


1107.6 Completing the Application: Group Registration of Serials


This Section provides guidance for completing the online application designated for a group of “Serial Issues.”


As discussed in Section 1107.3, applicants must use this form as a condition for seeking a group registration. If an applicant attempts to use a paper application or the Standard Application designated for a “Single Issue Serial” or a “Literary Work,” the U.S. Copyright Office will refuse registration and instruct the applicant to submit a new application, filing fee, and deposit through the electronic registration system.


NOTE: The online application does not contain spaces where the applicant can provide information regarding the individual contributions appearing within each issue, such as title, author, or copyright transfer information. The certificate of registration and the online public record for a group registration will identify only the title, author/claimant, and publication information for each issue in the group.


See Group Registration of Serials, 83 Fed. Reg. 22,896, 22,899 (May 17, 2018).
