2119.4 Extent of Renewal Claim

2119.4 Extent of Renewal Claim


Generally, renewal registration for a periodical issue as a whole is made in the name of the proprietor on the statutory basis that the work is a composite work. However, not all periodicals/serials are composite works. In such cases, if the periodical was created as a work made for hire, the renewal copyright may be claimed by the proprietor on that statutory basis. If the periodical was not made for hire, the renewal copyright may be claimed on behalf of the individual author. In either case, the renewal registration should be limited to the material created by the employer for hire or individual author. See Sections 2115.5 (C) (2) and 2126.
