1108.6 (B) Identifying the Newspaper

The applicant should provide the title of the newspaper exactly as it appears on the deposit copies, including any subtitle(s). As mentioned in Section 1108.2, the title that appears on each issue must be the same.

The applicant should identify the month and year that the issues were published. As mentioned in Section 1108.2, all the issues must be published within the same calendar month and the same calendar year.

In addition, the applicant should identify the city and state where the newspaper was published. If the issues were not published in a particular city or state, the applicant may provide the name of the country where the issues were published.

The applicant should provide this information on the Title screen in the fields marked “Title of Newspaper,” “City/State,” and “Month/Year.” If the applicant fails to complete this portion of the application, the claim will not be accepted by the electronic registration system.

If the applicant intends to submit “local editions” that were published within the same metropolitan area, the applicant should identify the city, town, or municipality served by that newspaper. For example, the applicant should state “New York, NY” when registering the Brooklyn, Bronx, Manhattan, Queens, and Staten Island editions of a New York City newspaper.

If a specific edition statement appears on each issue (such as “Late Edition” or “Final Edition”), this information may be provided on the title screen in the field marked “Edition.” Likewise, if the Sunday and daily editions are published under different titles (but under the same ISSN) the applicant may identify each edition in this portion of the application.
