2140 Cancellation of Renewal Registration Records
The U.S. Copyright Office will not cancel a renewal registration record unless it qualifies for cancellation under 37 C.F.R. § 201.7. Generally, a request to cancel a renewal registration record should come from the party who filed the renewal claim, or a successor or assignee of that party. The fact that this party did not represent one or more of the statutory renewal claimants or vested owners at the time of renewal registration may not be sufficient cause to cancel a record. Instead, the Office may require that the party correct or amplify the record by supplementary registration. For additional information concerning cancellation, see Chapter 1800, Section 1806.
