1611 No Requests for Reconsideration


A refusal to preregister is not subject to administrative review. If an application for preregistration is refused, the U.S. Copyright Office will not entertain a request for reconsideration. See 37 C.F.R. § 202.5 (A) (stating that administrative review is only available in cases involving a refusal to register a claim to copyright, a mask work, or a vessel design). If the applicant disagrees with the registration specialist’s decision, the applicant must submit a new application that addresses the issues identified in the refusal to preregister. If the new application is determined to be acceptable for preregistration, the effective date of preregistration will be the day on which the new application and the new filing fee were received in the U.S. Copyright Office. See Section 1609.
