1802.9 (E) Multiple Corrections and Amplifications Submitted on the Same Application
If the applicant discovers errors in the basic registration and missing information that should have been included in the application for basic registration, the applicant may correct and amplify the information that appears in the basic registration with one application for supplementary registration.
If the applicant provides the corrected or amplified information in the wrong field/space of the application (such as using the amplification field to identify an error in the basic registration), the registration specialist may issue a supplementary registration without communicating with the applicant. Likewise, the specialist may issue a supplementary registration, even if the specialist disagrees with the applicant as to whether the proposed change constitutes a “correction” or an “amplification.” See Corrections and Amplifications of Copyright Registrations; Import Statements; and Recordation of Transfers and Other Documents, 43 Fed. Reg. 771, 771 (Jan. 4, 1978).
• Farida Hazra Khan wrote a travelogue titled Get Your Groove On. In 2013 Farida’s agent registered the work, but she mistakenly identified the author as Hazra Khan. In the Rights and Permissions field the agent stated that requests to license the work should be sent to her address in Chicago. The agent subsequently moved to Philadelphia. The author’s correct name and the agent’s current address may be added to the registration record by providing the following information in the online application:
‚àí Individual Author/First, Middle, Last Name: Farida Khan.
‚àí Rights & Permissions Information/Address, City, State, Postal Code: 1800 JFK Boulevard, Philadelphia, PA 19101.
‚àí Correction Explanation: Author’s first name given incorrectly.
‚àí Amplification Explanation: The address for rights and permissions has been changed to 1800 JFK Boulevard, Philadelphia, PA 19101.
