1110.7 (B) Identifying the Works Included within the Group

1110.7 (B) Identifying the Works Included within the Group


Section 408 (C) (2) (B) of the Copyright Act states that contributions to periodicals may be registered as a group, provided that “the application identifies each work separately, including the periodical containing it and its date of first publication.” 17 U.S.C. § 408 (C) (2) (B).


As discussed in Section 1110.2, all the contributions must be published within a twelve- month period (e.g., May 1, 2012 through April 30, 2013). When completing the application, applicants are encouraged to list the contributions in chronological order.


Although the contributions must be published within a twelve-month period, the works may be published in different periodicals and on different dates. Currently there is no limit on the total number of contributions that may be submitted, although applicants must include at least two contributions in each claim. See Group Registration of Contributions to Periodicals, 81 Fed. Reg. 86,634, 86,639 (Dec. 1, 2016).
