1108.6 (D) Publication Dates for the Issues in the Group


1108.6 (D) Publication Dates for the Issues in the Group


All of the issues must be published within the same month and the same year, and the applicant must provide the date of publication for the earliest and most recent issues in the group. If the issues were published in different months or different years, the registration specialist will refuse to register the claim. See Group Registration of Newspapers, 82 Fed. Reg. 51,369, 51,372 (Nov. 6, 2017).


This information should be provided on the Publication screen in “MM/YYYY” format. For example, if the issues were published on a daily basis in March 2018, the applicant should enter “03/01/2018” for the earliest issue in the group and “03/31/2018” for the most recent issue in the group. If the applicant fails to complete this portion of the application, the claim will not be accepted by the electronic registration system.
