610.6 (D) (4) Material Variances Between the Title Provided in the Application and the Title That Appears on the Deposit Copy(ies)


The applicant is solely responsible for ensuring that the work described in the application matches the copy or phonorecord that is submitted to the U.S. Copyright Office.


If there is a material variance between the title given in the application and the deposit copy(ies) and if it is unclear whether the application and deposit copy(ies) refer to the same work, the registration specialist may communicate with the applicant.

Alternatively, the specialist may register the claim with an annotation that identifies the title appearing on the deposit.


Examples:


• The title given in the application is Davidson’s Biology for Preparatory Study. The title given on the deposit copies is Poems for Shona and Liletha. The registration specialist may communicate with the applicant to determine whether the correct deposit copies have been submitted or whether the title field should be revised.


• The title provided in the application is Ten Frontier Women and the Founding of Carson City, and the title given on the deposit copies is Eight Frontier Men and the Founding of Calico. The registration specialist may register the claim with an annotation, such as: “Regarding title information: Title on the deposit copy is ‘Eight Frontier Men and the Founding of Calico.'”
