2309.11 The Filing Fee Requirement
To record a transfer or other document pertaining to copyright, the remitter must submit the correct filing fee. The current fee is set forth in the U.S. Copyright Office’s fee schedule. 37 C.F.R. § 201.3.
Specifically, the remitter must pay a basic recording fee for each document that is submitted for recordation. The basic recording fee is listed in the Office’s fee schedule under the heading “Recordation of Documents: Recordation of document, including a notice of intention to enforce (containing no more than 1 title).”
If the document contains multiple titles the remitter must pay the basic recording fee plus an additional filing fee. The additional fee is listed in the fee schedule under the heading “Recordation of Documents: Additional titles (per group of 10 or fewer titles).”
These fees are discussed in more detail below. For information concerning the methods for paying the filing fee, see Chapter 1400, Sections 1403.3 through 1403.5.
