1510.2 Requests for Full-Term Deposit Storage for Published Works


Full-term retention of published deposit copy(ies) may be requested in certain circumstances. This option offers copyright owners the opportunity to ensure that copies or phonorecords of their works will remain in the custody of the U.S. Copyright Office for seventy-five years from the date of first publication. A request for full-term retention may be approved by the Office of Public Records and Repositories under the following conditions:


• The work is published;


• Copyright registration is approved;


• The appropriate fee is received; and


• The copy has been continuously in the custody of the U.S. Copyright Office.


See 37 C.F.R. § 202.23 (A)- (C). The Office reserves the right to deny requests for full-term storage.


For information on how to request full-term storage of published deposits, see Chapter 2400, Section 2410.
