The application for copyright registration must specify the title(s) of the work(s) the applicant wishes to register. The application also should include any previous or alternative titles by which the work may be identified. 17 U.S.C. § 409 (6). If the work being registered is part of a larger work or a series of works, the applicant may provide the title of the larger work or the title of the series. If the work being registered contains separate and independent works owned by the claimant and if those works are included in the claim, the applicant is strongly encouraged to provide the titles of those works in the Contents Title(s) field.
The title of the work will appear in the certificate of registration under the heading Title of Work, and it will appear in the online public record under the heading Application Title. The title that appears on the deposit copy(ies) will appear in the online public record under the heading Title. If there is no title on the deposit copy(ies), the title given in the application will appear in the online public record in both the Title field and the Application Title field.
