1406.2 Group Registration of Serials (GRSE)

1406.2 Group Registration of Serials (GRSE)


As mentioned in Section 1403, serials are works issued, or intended to be issued, in successive parts bearing numerical or chronological designations and intended to be continued indefinitely. This category includes but is not limited to periodicals (including newspapers), magazines, bulletins, newsletters, annuals, blogs, journals, and proceedings of societies.


In certain cases, an applicant may register a group of serials with one application, one filing fee, and one set of deposit copies. To do so, the applicant must use the online application designated for “Serial Issues.” The Standard Application for a “Literary Work” or a “Single Serial Issue” or a paper application may not be used to register this type of claim.


For information concerning the registration requirements for a group of serial issues, see Chapter 1100, Sections 1107.2 through 1107.5. For guidance in completing the online application, see Chapter 1100, Section 1107.7.
