2205.2 (I) Error in the Name of the Copyright Owner
When the person named in the notice was authorized by the copyright owner to publish the work, but is not the actual copyright owner, it is considered to be an error in the name. This does not affect the validity or ownership of the copyright. In such cases, the work may be registered at any time before the copyright expires, provided that the applicant identifies the claimant who owns the copyright at the time when the application is submitted to the U.S. Copyright Office.
