As discussed above, applicants must use an online application to register an architectural work, a group of unpublished works, a group of photographs, a group of serials or newsletters, a group of contributions to periodicals, or a group of short online literary works. In most cases, applicants must use the online application to correct or amplify the information appearing in an existing registration. See Sections 1404, 1406.1, 1406.2, 1406.4, 1406.5, and 1407.
In exceptional cases, the U.S. Copyright Office may waive this online filing requirement, subject to such conditions that the Associate Register of Copyrights and Director of the Office of Registration Policy and Practice may impose on the applicant. An applicant may submit a request to waive this requirement in writing. It should explain why the applicant is unable to use the online application, and it should be sent to the following address:
