2309.10 (E) Unsigned Documents
As discussed in Section 2309.10 (A), a transfer or other document pertaining to copyright should contain the actual signature or signatures of the person or persons who executed the document. Documents that have not been signed will be returned to the remitter. If the remitter subsequently submits a signed copy of the document, the recordation specialist may record the document if the requirements set forth in Section 2309.7 have been met. The date of recordation will be based on the date that the signed document was received by the Office.
