610.6 Examination Guidelines: Title of Work

610.6 Examination Guidelines: Title of Work

As a general rule, the title that is specified in the application will be accepted without question. The registration specialist may change or correct any apparent spelling, capitalization, or punctuation mistakes in the title, but only if the misspelling or incorrect use of capital letters or punctuation appears to be unintentional. The specialist will use his or her judgment to determine whether an error was intentional or a typographical mistake.


• The applicant submits an application for a rap song. The title on the online application is given as “Let US LeaVe hiM hEre.” The title will appear in the registration record exactly as it appears on the application.

• The applicant files an application to register a multimedia work. The title listed on the application is Boook of Jonah; the title on the copy is Book of Jonah. The registration specialist may correct the spelling of the title that appears on the application to conform to the title on the deposit copy.
