604.1 Addressing Variances in the Registration Materials

 

604.1 Addressing Variances in the Registration Materials

As discussed in Section 603, the registration specialist may annotate the registration record to address certain variances in the application.

 

Example:

 

• Leslie Steward writes a screenplay titled High Heels and a Pickup Truck, which is based on her previously published novel of the same name. In the Note to Copyright Office field Leslie states: “This screenplay is adapted from my novel High Heels and a Pickup Truck, published in 2009,” but the Limitation of Claim screen has been left blank. The specialist may insert this statement in the relevant fields on the Limitation of Claim screen, and may add an annotation to the registration record, such as: “Regarding limitation of claim: Statement added by Copyright Office from Note to Copyright Office.”
