204.1 Completed Application
An applicant must use the official applications provided by the U.S. Copyright Office. Most claims may be submitted online by using the Office’s electronic registration system, and in some cases applicants are required to use the online application to seek a registration.
Applicants generally may submit a paper application as an alternative to using the electronic system, although applicants are required to use a paper application for certain types of claims.
Each type of application is discussed in Sections 204.1 (A) and 204.1 (B) below.
