1110.7 Completing the Application: Group Registration of Contributions to Periodicals

 

1110.7 Completing the Application: Group Registration of Contributions to Periodicals

 

This Section provides guidance for completing the online application for a group of contributions to periodicals.

 

The application may be submitted by the author or claimant for the contributions, the owner of any of the exclusive rights in the contributions, or a duly authorized agent of these parties. See 37 C.F.R. § 202.4 (G) (6).

 

As discussed in Section 1110.3, applicants must use the online application as a condition for seeking a group registration. If an applicant attempts to use a paper application, the U.S. Copyright Office will refuse registration and instruct the applicant to resubmit the claim using the online application. See Group Registration of Contributions to Periodicals, 82 Fed. Reg. 29,410, 29,410-11 (June 29, 2017).

 

NOTE: In exceptional cases, the Office may waive the online filing requirement, subject to such conditions that the Associate Register of Copyrights and Director of the Office of Registration Policy and Practice may impose on the applicant. 37 C.F.R. § 202.4 (G) (8). An applicant may submit a request to waive this requirement in writing. It should explain why the applicant is unable to use the online application, and it should be sent to the following address:
