2310.7 Recordation Requirements for Notices of Termination

2310.7 Recordation Requirements for Notices of Termination


A notice of termination may be recorded with the Copyright Office, provided that the grant is eligible for termination under Sections 203, 304 (C), or 304 (D) of the Copyright Act and provided the following requirements have been met:


• The notice is legible.



• The notice is complete.


• The notice bears the actual signature or signatures of the person or persons who signed the notice.


• The notice is submitted together with the correct filing fee.


If a notice does not comply with these requirements, the recordation specialist may communicate with the remitter, may refuse to record the notice, or may refuse to index the notice as a notice of termination.


The legibility, completeness, signature, and filing fee requirements are discussed in more detail in Sections 2310.7 (A) through 2310.7 (D) below.
