1508.6 (B) How to Avoid Damage to Deposit Copy(ies)

To avoid damage to the deposit, applicants should package the following items in cardboard boxes rather than envelopes for delivery to the Office:

• Audiocassettes, videocassettes, CDs, and DVDs.

• Microform.

• Photographs.

• Glossy advertisements, color photocopies, and other print items.

NOTE: CDs packaged in standard full-sized jewel boxes are more likely to survive the screening process than those packaged in slim-line cases.

In all cases, applicants are encouraged to remove any internal and external plastic packaging from the deposit. This type of material may melt during the irradiation process, which may damage the deposit.
