• A check received in payment for the filing fee was returned to the Office for insufficient funds. See Section 1807.4 (B).
• The Office has determined that the registration should not have been issued because the work does not constitute copyrightable subject matter or fails to satisfy the other legal and formal requirements for obtaining a copyright registration. See Section 1807.4 (C).
• The Office has determined that the application, filing fee, and/or the deposit copy(ies) do not satisfy the requirements of the Copyright Act and/or the Office’s regulations and the Office is unable to correct the defect. See Section 1807.4 (D).
