1904.2 Facts Stated in the Application

As a general rule, the U.S. Copyright Office will not conduct its own factual investigation to determine whether a work is published or unpublished or to confirm the truth of the statements made in the application concerning publication.

Ordinarily, the Office will accept the facts stated in the application, unless they are implausible or conflict with information provided elsewhere in the registration materials, the Office’s records, or other sources of information that are known by the Office.
