1112.8 Completing the Application: Group Registration of Databases

1112.8 Completing the Application: Group Registration of Databases


This Section provides guidance for registering a database and/or a group of updates or revisions using Forms TX or VA.


The U.S. Copyright Office has established a pilot program for applicants who wish to register databases that consist predominantly of photographs using the electronic registration system. As discussed in Section 1112.4, applicants must contact the Visual Arts Division for authorization to use the online application and for guidance in completing the application and submitting the deposit copies.


As discussed in Section 1112.3, the updates or revisions in the group must be created or published within a period of three months or less. The application may be submitted on the last day of this period or anytime thereafter (regardless of whether the applicant uses the online registration system or a paper application). However, if the application is received before the last day of the period specified in the application, the registration specialist will communicate with the applicant.
