2141 Referral of Renewal Registration Records


2141 Referral of Renewal Registration Records


The U.S. Copyright Office will not refer a renewal registration record for correction or cancellation unless the record contains an error the Office should have recognized at the time of registration, or the Office made an error, or in some way failed to properly process the renewal claim. Administrative action will depend on the error and its effect on the renewal registration record. In certain cases the effective date of the renewal registration record may be affected and, if an applicant fails to respond to Office correspondence or remedy the deficiency, the renewal registration record may be cancelled. For additional information concerning referrals, see Chapter 1800, Section 1804.


NOTE: It is the applicant’s responsibility to identify the proper statutory renewal claimant or vested owner. Once a renewal registration record has been entered, the Office will not refer the record or take administrative action to correct this error.
