2115.6 Current Owner Information


A renewal claim filed during the renewal term may identify the current owner (assignee or successor) of the renewal copyright, provided that it also identifies the vested owner. 17 U.S.C. § 304 (A) (3) (A)(ii) (allowing assignees or successors to register a claim to the renewed and extended term of copyright “if application is made in the name of” the vested owner). When the vested owner is deceased or defunct (as in the case of an organization) at the time of renewal registration, the renewal registration record must identify at least one current owner and provide information about how that party obtained the renewal copyright from the vested owner.
