As a general rule, the copyright owner or owner of the exclusive right of publication in a published work may satisfy the mandatory deposit requirement by registering that work with the U.S. Copyright Office. See 17 U.S.C. § 408 (B) (2). To do so, the applicant should submit a completed application, the appropriate filing fee, and the appropriate number of complete copy(ies) or phonorecord(s) of the best edition of the work.


For guidance in completing an application and for information concerning the filing fee, see Chapters 600 and 1400. For guidance in submitting the deposit copies or phonorecords for an application, see Section 1508.
