604.3 Adding Missing Information to the Registration Record

604.3 Adding Missing Information to the Registration Record

As discussed in Section 603.2 (B), an annotation may be used to explain that required information was missing from the application and that the registration specialist obtained that information from elsewhere in the registration materials, such as a cover letter or the deposit copy(ies).


• The registration specialist receives two applications for a children’s book titled Learn to Box Young. In both cases, the applicant submitted two copies of the book. One application asserts a claim in the text by Caleb Rose while the other asserts a claim in the illustrations by Mario Ali. The application for Caleb states that the work was published on August 1, 2008, but the application for Mario does not provide a date of publication. The specialist will insert “August 1, 2008” in Mario’s application and will add an annotation, such as: “Regarding publication: Publication date added by Copyright Office from application submitted simultaneously.”
