• Richard Maguire registered a sound recording. The title given in the certificate of registration is “I’ll Love You,” but the title given on the deposit copy is “I’ll Love You (Forever).” Richard may add the longer title to the registration record with a supplementary registration.
• Carrie Murtagh registered the first draft of her short story. At the time, she had not decided on the title for the story, so she entered “A Warped Frustrated Old Man (Working Title)” in the Title field. Three months later Carrie published her story under the title “Potter’s Field.” Carrie may add the new title to the registration record with a supplementary registration, or preferably, by registering the published version of her story and listing the prior title in the Previous or Alternative Title field.
• Adams Baker & Co. submitted a compact disc that contains a dozen sound recordings.
