2128 Group Renewal Registration

2128 Group Renewal Registration


The current law provides for a single renewal registration of a group of works by the same individual author that were first published as contributions to periodicals within the same calendar year. One of the criteria, however, makes that provision applicable only to timely renewal registration.30 17 U.S.C. § 408 (C) (3). Once timely renewal registration ended for the last works that secured copyright under the Copyright Act of 1909, the U.S. Copyright Office determined that group renewal registration should no longer be made. Therefore, as of 2006, group renewal registration has not been available.
