2310.10 Date of Recordation for a Notice of Termination

 

2310.10 Date of Recordation for a Notice of Termination

 

To be effective, a notice of termination must be recorded with the U.S. Copyright Office before the effective date of termination.

 

The date of recordation for a notice of termination is the date when the Office receives the proper filing fee and a notice that satisfies the relevant requirements set forth in Section 201.10 (F) of the regulations, regardless of when the recordation specialist examines and records the notice.

 

If the notice and the filing fee are received on different dates, the date of recordation is based on the date of receipt for the last item that is received by the Office. Likewise, if the notice is returned to the remitter for correction, the date of recordation is based on the date that the corrected notice is received by the Office.

 

See 37 C.F.R. § 201.10 (F) (3); see also Filing of Agreements Between Copyright Owners and Public Broadcasting Entities, Termination of Transfers and Licenses Covering the Extended Renewal Terms, Etc., 41 Fed. Reg. 221, 221 (Nov. 15, 1976).
