1216 Correction or Amplification of a Completed Registration

 

Except for errors or omissions made by the U.S. Copyright Office, no corrections or amplifications can be made to the information contained in the registration record for a completed mask work registration. In particular, a supplementary registration cannot be used to correct or amplify the information set forth in this type of registration. 37 C.F.R. § 211.4 (F). If the Office made an error or omission in preparing the certificate, the owner of the mask work should contact the Office in writing using the form posted on the Office’s website. If appropriate, the Office will correct the mistake and issue a new certificate to the correspondent named in the certificate.

 

A document purporting to correct or amplify the information in a completed registration may be recorded in the Office if it is signed by the owner of the mask work or by the owner’s duly authorized agent. 37 C.F.R. § 211.4 (F). For information on how to record a document, see Chapter 2300, Section 2309.
