The issues must be submitted in PDF format, and the applicant must upload a separate PDF file for each issue in the group. The issues should be assembled within each PDF in an orderly form with the pages arranged in sequential reading order.
• The Daily Planet published thirty-one issues in the month of January. To register these issues, the applicant should submit thirty- one PDF files containing a complete copy of the final edition of each issue published during that month.
The PDF files must be viewable and searchable, and they must be free of any access restrictions, such as password protection, watermarks, or other Digital Rights Management (DRM).
The PDF files must contain embedded fonts, meaning that the fonts used in each issue should be included within the file itself. If the fonts are embedded, the registration specialist should be able to see the fonts that appeared in each issue when it was originally published. Consult the help text that accompanies the online application for guidance in determining whether the fonts have been properly embedded.
