1114.6 (C) Title of the Group

1114.6 (C) Title of the Group


To register a group of photographs, the applicant must provide a title for the group as a whole. This information should be provided on the Title screen in the space marked

“Title of Group.” As discussed in Sections 1114.4 (A) and 1114.6(O), this title should also be included in the file name for the title list and in the field marked “File Name for

Required Numbered List of Photographs” on the Certification screen.


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 photographer and the month/year the photos were taken, such as “Jack Jackson’s Photos May through July 2018.” The Office will accept a title that identifies the subject matter of the photos, such as “Tropical Images from Hawaii.” If the photographer created the photos for a particular client or project, the applicant may include that information in the title of the group, such as “Photos Taken for ABC Advertising Company.” If the photographer shot several groups of photos for the same client or project and plans to submit a separate application for each group, the applicant may use the same title in each application followed by the phrase “Group 1 of 2,” “Group 2 of 2,” etc.
