2007.2Registration Requirements for Restored Works
The Copyright Act protects restored works regardless of whether they are registered with the U.S. Copyright Office, although registration does provide various benefits, which are described in Chapter 200, Section 202. This Section provides general information for copyright owners that wish to register their restored works with the Office.
A registration for a restored work (which is known as a “GATT registration”) covers an individual work, and an applicant should prepare a separate application, filing fee, and deposit for each work that is submitted to the Office. See Fees, 71 Fed. Reg. 15,368, 15,369 (Mar. 28, 2006).
