1802.6 (B) Change in Name or Address

1802.6 (B) Change in Name or Address


A supplementary registration may be used to correct spelling errors or similar mistakes in the author’s name, the claimant’s name, or any other name that appears in the registration record. Likewise, a supplementary registration may be used to reflect a change in a name or address that appears in the basic registration (although it cannot be used to remove that information from the original record).


Examples:


• The U.S. Copyright Office issued a basic registration for a sound recording naming Dean Jonson as the author of the work. The author’s name should have been spelled Dean Johnson. The error may be corrected with a supplementary registration.


• The Office issued a basic registration for a technical drawing. The certificate of registration names Richard Oxley as the author of this work, but the name given on the deposit copy is Richard Drummond Oxley. Richard may add his middle name to the registration record with a supplementary registration.


• In 2001 Kara King submitted an application to register a painting. Kara got married in 2011 and changed her name to Kara Mitchell. Kara’s married name may be added to the registration record with a supplementary registration.


• In 2008 Bethany Rolling registered a sound recording, naming herself as the author and copyright claimant. At the time Bethany was living in Damascus, Maryland, and she provided her home address in the Name of Claimant field and the Rights and Permissions field. Three years later Bethany moved to Providence, Rhode Island. Bethany may add her new address to the registration record with a supplementary registration.
