610.6 (B) Descriptive Titles That Appear to Be Incorrect

610.6 (B) Descriptive Titles That Appear to Be Incorrect


If the applicant provides a descriptive title that does not appear to describe the work that has been submitted for registration (such as “Study in Red” for a painting that is black and white), the registration specialist generally will accept the title specified in the application. However, the specialist may communicate with the applicant or register the claim with an annotation if there is a material variance between the title provided in the application and the title that appears on the deposit copy(ies). For examples of a material variance, see Section 610.6 (D) (4).
