1111.7 (I) Titles of the Individual Works


As discussed in Section 1111.6, the applicant must submit a list containing the title, file name, publication date, and word count for each work in the group. In addition, the applicant must enter a title for each work in the application itself.


The titles for the individual works must be provided on the “Titles of the Works” screen in the field marked “Titles of Works Being Registered.” For step-by-step instructions on how to copy information from the list of titles and paste it into the application, consult the help text and video tutorial that accompany the application.


The titles entered in this part of the application must match the corresponding file names for the digital copies that are uploaded through the Office’s electronic registration system. And they must match the corresponding titles and file names specified in the aforementioned list. If the titles and file names do not match each other, the registration specialist may refuse to register the entire claim.

• Asher Bradley intends to register three poems titled “Memorial Day,” “Independence Day, and “Labor Day.” He plans to upload these poems in three separate PDF files. The Office will accept:
