In all cases, the claim will be limited to “photographs” and that term will be added automatically to the application by the electronic registration system. The system will not accept claims in “digital editing,” “compilation,” or any other form of authorship other than “photographs.” Likewise, applicants will not be allowed to add other forms of authorship to the claim during the examination process or with a supplementary registration.


NOTE: To assert a claim in “digital editing” applicants may submit a separate application and a separate filing fee for each photograph (rather than submitting a group of photographs under GRUPH or GRPPH). In appropriate cases, applicants may assert a claim in a “compilation” of photographs by registering them as part of a collective work, such as a book of photographs, an exhibition catalog, a calendar, or the like.
