2309.11 (B) (1) Identifying the Titles Listed in the Document
To calculate the additional filing fee for documents that contain two or more titles, the remitter should count each title listed in the document.
The remitter should not count the number of parties listed in the document. Likewise, the remitter should not count the titles for any patents, trademarks, domain names, trade secrets, or other forms of uncopyrightable subject matter that may be listed in the document.
• The first paragraph of the document states “Serendipity Productions hereby transfers to Sumner Studios all right, title, and interest in the works listed in the attached schedule.” Three works are listed in the schedule, including a screenplay titled “Help Me,” a motion picture titled “Help Me,” and a sound recording titled “Help Me.” The remitter should submit the basic recording fee for the title of the screenplay, plus an additional filing fee to cover the title of the motion picture and the sound recording.
• The first paragraph of the document states “Kolkata Films hereby transfers all right, title, and interest in the assets listed in the attached schedule to Desi Studios, Udaipur Productions, and Shami Ghazal Films.” The schedule lists the titles of six motions pictures, thirty musical compositions, two trademarks, and twelve domain names. The remitter should submit the basic recording fee for the title of the first motion picture listed in the schedule. The remitter also should submit the additional filing fee for the five other motion pictures and the thirty musical compositions. The amount of this fee would be four times the amount listed in the fee schedule under the heading “Recordation of Documents: Additional titles (per group of 10 or fewer titles).”
