2115.5 Vested Owner Information

 

2115.5 Vested Owner Information

 

This space of Form RE provides information about the party in whom the renewal copyright vested, and may provide information regarding ownership of the renewal copyright at the time of registration. At least one party must be identified as a vested owner and an acceptable statement must be provided as to the statutory basis for that vested owner’s claim to the renewal copyright. Generally, the vested owner is a statutory renewal claimant, but for information concerning the effect of a timely renewal registration, see Section 2115.5 (D). While the vesting date generally has not been given in Form RE,14 it is the first fact that has to be determined in order to identify the parties entitled to claim the renewal copyright.
