1108.5 (A) (4) Uploading the Digital Files
The applicant must upload each issue to the electronic registration system, and each issue must be contained in a separate PDF file.
The applicant may submit all the files during the same upload session, and all the files may be uploaded at the same time. They do not need to be uploaded one by one. For step-by-step instructions on how to upload files to the electronic registration system, consult the tutorial on the U.S. Copyright Office’s website.
IMPORTANT NOTE: The file size for each PDF must not exceed 500 MB. If necessary, the files may be compressed to fit within this limit, but applicants should not submit the issues in a compressed file, such as a .cab, .rar, or .zip file.
