1802.8 (A) (8) Applicant’s Internal Tracking Number / Note to Copyright Office
The applicant may assign an internal tracking number to an online application by completing the field marked Applicant’s Internal Tracking Number on the Certification screen.
Providing a tracking number is optional and this feature is intended solely for the applicant’s convenience. The U.S. Copyright Office does not use these numbers to keep track of pending applications, although the number will appear on the certificate of supplementary registration.
The applicant may provide any additional information that is relevant to the claim in the field marked Note to Copyright Office. Currently, the total amount of text that may be provided in this field is limited to 25,000 characters.
Statements provided in the Note to Copyright Office field will not appear on the certificate of supplementary registration or the online public record. The Office will maintain a copy of the note in the registration record. If the note contains material information, the specialist may add that information to the registration record with an annotation, or may add a note to the certificate of registration and the online public record indicating that there is correspondence in the file.
