1805.1 (C) Requests Submitted without Verifiable Substitute Information

 

In general, the U.S. Copyright Office will grant a request to remove PII when the requesting party provides verifiable, non-personally-identifiable substitute information, unless the Office determines that the need to maintain the original information in the public record substantially outweighs the safety, privacy, or other concern stated in the request.

 

When a requesting party does not provide verifiable substitute information, the Office may grant the request only if the safety, privacy, or other stated concern substantially outweighs the need for the information to remain in the public record. In such cases, the requesting party must explain in detail why the presence of PII in the online public catalog presents a specific threat to the individual’s personal safety or personal security, or presents other circumstances that support the request. 37 C.F.R. § 201.2 (E) (3)(vi).
