1110.7 (B) (1) Identifying the Contributions
The applicant should provide a title for each contribution within the group, and in each case the title should be provided exactly as it appears in the deposit copies. The applicant should provide this information on the Title screen in the field marked Title of Contribution. If the applicant fails to complete this portion of the application, the claim will not be accepted by the electronic registration system.
If the contribution was published without a title, the applicant should provide a descriptive title that identifies the general subject matter of the work or any other relevant information that a person searching the U.S. Copyright Office’s records would likely include in his or her search request.
If the contributions were published as part of a series of works by the same author, such as an advice column, an editorial column, a cartoon strip, or the like, the applicant may provide the title for that series (if any). This information may be provided on the Title screen in the field marked Series Title.
In addition, the applicant should provide the year of completion for the most recent contribution in the group. For example, if the author completed the contributions in 2015, 2016, and 2017, the applicant should state “2017” on the Title screen in the field marked Year of Completion. For additional guidance on completing this portion of the application, see Chapter 600, Section 611.
