2115.5 (E) (3) Statutory Renewal Claimant Is Not Vested Owner


When the renewal copyright vested in a party which acquired the renewal copyright from a statutory renewal claimant as determined by a timely renewal registration, the renewal claim must provide the statutory basis for the claim to the renewal copyright and a statement showing how the vested owner acquired the copyright from the statutory renewal claimant. Examples of acceptable statements are:


• By will (or by intestate succession) of (name of deceased statutory renewal claimant), who was entitled on (effective date of timely renewal registration) to claim the renewal copyright as the (basis of claim statement from Section 2115.5 (E) (1)).


• By assignment or written agreement on (date) from (name of deceased or defunct statutory claimant), entitled on (effective date of timely renewal registration) to claim the renewal copyright as the (basis of claim statement from Section 2115.5 (E) (1) or 2115.5 (E) (2)).


• By merger agreement with (name of defunct statutory claimant), entitled on (effective date of timely renewal registration) to claim the renewal copyright as the (basis of claim statement from Section 2115.5 (E) (2)).
