1805.1 (B) Claimant Address Change Requests

1805.1 (B) Claimant Address Change Requests


Requests to remove the address of a copyright claimant must be accompanied by a verifiable substitute address. 37 C.F.R. § 201.2 (E) (2)(ii). Removing the claimant’s address from the online public record would impede the public’s ability to contact a copyright owner to obtain permission to use the work. Therefore, the U.S. Copyright Office will not remove this information unless a verifiable substitute address is provided. Id.; see also Removal of Personally Identifiable Information From Registration Records, 81 Fed. Reg. 63,440, 63441 (Sept. 15, 2016).
