1606.10 Filing Fee

1606.10 Filing Fee

The current filing fee for an application for preregistration is set forth in the U.S. Copyright Office’s fee schedule under the heading “Preregistration of certain unpublished works.” For information concerning the methods for paying this filing fee, see Chapter 1400, Sections 1403.4 and 1403.5.

The Office will not refund the filing fee under any circumstances. Nor will the Office credit the fee toward the filing fee for an application for a basic registration, even if the applicant intended to submit an application for registration but submitted an application for preregistration by mistake. See 37 C.F.R. § 202.16 (C) (5).
