1509.2 (E) (2) Audiovisual Works Fixed in Machine-Readable Copies Other Than a CD-ROM
To register an audiovisual work that has been fixed or published solely in machine- readable copies other than a CD-ROM, the applicant should submit identifying material, such as:
• A videotape or a series of photographs depicting representative portions of the copyrightable content of the work; and
• A separate synopsis of the work.
37 C.F.R. § 202.20 (C) (2)(viii) (B). The applicant also may submit any packaging and/or instructional material that accompanies the pictorial images, if that material contains copyrightable authorship.
Examples of audiovisual works that fall within this category include arcade games and videogames that are not fixed on CD-ROMs.
In all cases, the applicant should include the title of the work on the identifying material. If the work has been published the applicant also should include the copyright notice for the work (if any). Id. § 202.20 (C) (2)(viii).
NOTE: If the applicant is unable to submit identifying material using any of these options, the applicant may ask for special relief from the deposit requirements. For information concerning this procedure, see Section 1508.8.
