618.8 (D) De Minimis Material Claimed in the Author Created Field or the Nature of Authorship Space


The material described in the Author Created field or the Nature of Authorship space must be copyrightable. If the author’s contribution to the work is de minimis, the U.S. Copyright Office may ask the applicant for permission to remove that claim from the application, or in appropriate cases, may add an annotation to clarify that the registration does not cover that element. If the claim appears to be limited to the de minimis material or if there appears to be no other basis for asserting a valid claim in the work, the Office will refuse registration.
