2122.5 (F) Renewal Claim Includes Artwork or Text on Album Cover or Insert


To secure statutory copyright, visually perceptible authorship first published on an album cover or insert must have been first published with the statutory or U.C.C. notice. For renewal registration purposes, these elements must be registered separately from the sound recording, based on the separate copyright notices for the sound recording and visually perceptible authorship, unless:


• The renewal claim is based on an original registration record for the sound recording that included these elements; and


• The renewal copyrights vested in the same party and on the same date.


NOTE: A copyright notice for the sound recording cannot secure statutory copyright for the visually perceptible authorship.
