1111.7 (C) Title of the Group

1111.7 (C) Title of the Group


To register a group of short online literary works, the applicant must provide a title for the group as a whole. This information should be provided in the field marked “Title of Group” on the “Group Title/Publication and Completion Information” screen. As discussed in Sections 1111.6 and 1111.7 (A), the group title should also be included in the file name for the list of titles, file names, publication dates, and word counts, and it should be provided on this same screen in the field marked “File Name for List.”


Applicants may provide any title that reasonably identifies the group as a whole. For example, the U.S. Copyright Office will accept a title that identifies the author, type of works, and dates that the works were published online, such as “Keisha Smith Facebook Posts (May through July 2020).” Or the Office will accept a title that identifies the subject matter of the works, such as “Online Dispatches from the Coronavirus Pandemic.”


If the applicant plans to submit two or more group registration applications, the same title may be used in each application followed by the phrase “Group 1 of 2,” “Group 2 of 2,” etc.


Example:


• Charles Donovan Social Media Posts (September-November 2020) Group 1 of 2.


• Charles Donovan Social Media Posts (September-November 2020) Group 2 of 2.
