1406.3 Group Registration of Newspapers (GRNP)
Newspapers are periodicals that are mainly designed to be a primary source of written information on current events. A newspaper contains a broad range of news on all subjects and activities, and is not limited to any specific subject matter. They are intended either for the general public or a particular ethnic, cultural, or national group.
In certain cases, an applicant may register a group of newspaper issues with one application, one filing fee, and one set of deposit copies. To do so, the applicant must use the online application designated for “daily newspapers.” The Standard Application or a paper application may not be used to register this type of claim.
For information concerning the registration requirements for a group of newspaper issues, see Chapter 1100, Section 1108. For guidance in completing the online application, see Chapter 1100, Section 1108.6.
