610.6 (D) (1) Variances between the Title Provided in the Application and the Title That Appears on the Deposit Copy(ies)

610.6 (D) (1) Variances between the Title Provided in the Application and the Title That Appears on the Deposit Copy(ies)


If there is a material variance between the title given in the application and the deposit copy(ies), and it is clear that both titles refer to the same work, the registration specialist may add the title that appears on the deposit copy(ies) to the title field of the online public record and/or the specialist may add an annotation to the registration record, such as: “Regarding title: Title on the deposit copy is        .”


The title may be taken from the cover, title page, spine, or any other place where a title may be found. If the deposit copy(ies) are submitted in electronic form, the title may be taken from the file name for the document (excluding extensions indicating the format of the document, such as .doc, .pdf, .mp3, etc.).


Examples:


• The title on the deposit copy(ies) reads: The Quest for Rest Among Insomniacs. The title given on the application reads: The Quest for Rest. The registration specialist will register the claim without communicating with the applicant. The title that appears on the deposit copy(ies) may be added to the title field in the online public record.


• The title on the deposit copy(ies) is Rest Quest. The title on the application reads: The Quest for Rest Among Insomniacs. The application will be accepted. The title that appears on the copies will be added to the title field in the online public record. In addition, Rest Quest may be added to the registration record with an annotation, such as: “Regarding deposit: Title appears on copy as ‘Rest Quest.'”


• The applicant submits a paper application on Form PA for an unpublished screenplay. The application lists A Miracle as the title of the work, but the deposit copy gives the title as One More Miracle. The application will be accepted. The title given on the deposit copy will be added to the previous or alternative title field in the online public record. Additionally, One More Miracle may be added to the registration record with an annotation.
