2310.7 (D) The Filing Fee Requirement
To record a notice of termination, the remitter must submit the correct filing fee. The current fee is set forth in the Office’s fee schedule. 37 C.F.R. § 201.3 (C)(16).
Specifically, the remitter must pay a basic recording fee for each notice of termination. The basic recording fee is listed in the fee schedule under the heading “Recordation of document, including a notice of intention to enforce (single title).”
If the notice contains two or more titles the remitter must pay the basic recording fee plus an additional filing fee. The additional filing fee is listed in the fee schedule under the heading “Additional titles (per group of 10 or fewer titles).”The amount of the additional filing fee is based on the number of titles listed in the notice.
For general guidance in calculating the filing fee for notices that contain two or more titles, see Calculating Fees for Recording Documents and Notices of Termination in the Copyright Office (Circular 12A). For guidance in identifying the number of titles listed in a notice, see Sections 2309.11 (B) (1) through 2309.11 (B) (5). For information concerning the methods for paying the filing fee, see Chapter 1400, Sections 1403.3 through 1403.5.
