2111.3 Deposit Requirement


Generally, a deposit copy is not required for a renewal registration, because the required deposit materials were sent to the U.S. Copyright Office at the time of original registration.


Exception: In some cases, as when a renewal claim is filed in a contribution or separate work or element of authorship first published in a larger work, the Office may request examining material that shows the nature and contents of the work being registered or of the larger work.
