1802.5 What Type of Information May Be Corrected or Amplified with a Supplementary Registration?

 

Supplementary registrations may be used for certain types of corrections and amplifications. A registration may be corrected if “information in the basic registration was incorrect at the time that basic registration was made.” 37 C.F.R. § 202.6 (D) (2). An amplification may be used “[t]o supplement or clarify the information that was required by the application for the basic registration and should have been provided, such as the identity of a co-author or co-claimant, but was omitted at the time the basic registration was made.” Id. § 202.6 (D) (3) (I). An amplification may also be used “[t]o reflect changes in facts, other than those relating to transfer, license, or ownership of rights in the work, that occurred since the basic registration was made.” Id. § 202.6 (D) (3)(ii).

 

For representative examples of situations where a supplementary registration can and cannot be used to correct or amplify the information in a basic registration, see Sections 1802.6 and 1802.7.
