1802.8 (A) (6) Explanation for the Amplification

1802.8 (A) (6) Explanation for the Amplification

As mentioned above, a supplementary registration may be used to clarify the information that appears in the basic registration, to provide missing information that should have been included in the registration, or to reflect changes that have occurred since the registration was made (other than a change in the ownership of the copyright).

The applicant should provide this information in the relevant portions of the online application. In addition, the applicant should provide a brief statement that identifies and explains the reason for the amplification. This statement should be provided on the Certification screen in the field marked Amplification Explanation:

• The applicant should identify the section of the basic registration that should be amplified. The applicant may provide the heading for that section, such as “Author” or “Copyright Claimant.” If the spaces on the certificate are numbered, the applicant may also provide the relevant line number, such as “4” or “5.”

• The applicant should provide a clear and succinct statement of the information that should be added to the registration record.

If the changes reflected in the supplementary registration are intended to correct the information in the basic registration, the applicant should complete the Correction Explanation field. For guidance in completing this portion of the application, see Section 1802.8 (A) (5).
