2115.2 (E) (2) Published Work Not Registered for Original Term


If a published work was not registered for the original term, the complete name(s) of the proprietor(s) as identified in the copyright notice is required. If the work is a contribution or a separate work or element of authorship first published with its own separate copyright notice, Form RE should name the proprietor identified in the separate notice.


Exception: When the work was first published abroad, the applicant generally should name the owner of the right to secure U.S. copyright on the date of first publication. However, in certain cases it may be necessary or acceptable to name the proprietor identified in the notice. For more information about who should be named as the original copyright claimant, see U.S. COPYRIGHT OFFICE, COMPENDIUM OF U.S. COPYRIGHT 8 Not all corrections or omissions on an application resulted in stamping the later receipt date. However, when the later receipt date is stamped, that date supersedes the original date of receipt in determining the effective date of registration.


OFFICE PRACTICES Chs. 4, 8.2, & Supplementary Practice Nos. 18, 19, 27, 29, 35 & 37 (1st ed. 1973), available at noticerequirements.pdf.


Exception to exception: For works subject to the manufacturing clause, the renewal claim must name the proprietor identified in the copyright notice, unless the work was published with the U.C.C. notice.
