2314.11 Recorded Statements
When a Visual Arts Registry Statement has been recorded, the Office will return the statement to the remitter, along with a certificate of recordation. If the remitter submitted photographs or other documentation, the Office may retain these materials or may offer them to the Library of Congress for its collections. See 37 C.F.R. § 201.25 (E).
The Office will create an online public record that identifies the title and registration number (if any) for the work listed in the statement, the name of the party who executed the statement, the date of execution, the document number assigned to the recorded statement, and the date of recordation. However, the Office will not cross-reference this record with the online public record for the registration(s) referenced in the statement (if any).
The fact that a statement has been recorded with the Office is not a determination by the U.S. Copyright Office that the statement is accurate, complete, or in compliance with Section 113 (D) of the Copyright Act. The fact that information may be omitted from a statement shall not, in and of itself, invalidate the recordation, unless a court of competent jurisdiction finds that the statement is materially deficient and fails to meet the minimum requirements of Section 113 (D). See 37 C.F.R. § 201.25 (F).
