614.2 (A) Identifying the Work as a Work Made for Hire

614.2 (A) Identifying the Work as a Work Made for Hire


If the work described in the application is a work made for hire, the box marked “Is this author’s contribution a work made for hire?” should be checked “yes.”


If the applicant indicates that the work is a work made for hire, and it appears the statutory definition has been met, the registration specialist generally will accept the applicant’s assertion.


If the applicant checks the box marked “yes,” but the application, deposit copy(ies), or other registration materials indicate that the work does not meet the statutory definition for a work made for hire, the registration specialist may communicate with the applicant. Likewise, if the work appears to be a work made for hire the specialist may communicate with the applicant if the applicant checks the box marked “no” or fails to complete this portion of the application.
