204.3 (A) Deposit Copy(ies) Submitted in Electronic Format

The applicant may submit deposit copy(ies) electronically through the online registration system if the work meets any of the following requirements:

• The work is unpublished.

• The work has been published only in a digital format.

• The work has been published and identifying material is the appropriate deposit for that type of work. (For a detailed discussion of identifying material, see Chapter 1500, Section 1506.)

• The work is eligible for a group registration, and electronic copies must be submitted as a condition for using that option. (For a detailed discussion of the deposit requirements for a group registration, see Chapter 1500 (Deposits).)

In all cases, the applicant must submit the deposit copy(ies) in an acceptable file format. The currently acceptable file formats are listed on the Office’s website. If the applicant fails to comply with this requirement, the registration specialist will refuse registration.

If the work does not meet the requirements listed above, the applicant must submit deposit copy(ies) in a physical format. For a discussion of the procedure for submitting the deposit copy(ies) in physical format, see Section 204.3 (B) below.
