1802.9 (A) Errors Caused by the U.S. Copyright Office

 

If the Office discovers an error in a basic registration, and determines that the error was caused by its own action or mistake, the Office will take appropriate measures to correct the registration record. This procedure is known as a “referral.” In this situation, the Office will refund the filing fee without issuing a supplementary registration. See 37 C.F.R. § 202.6 (A); Supplementary Registration, 81 Fed. Reg. 86,656, 86,660 (Dec. 1, 2016).

 

For more information concerning referrals, see Section 1804.
