619.13 (E) (1) Applications Submitted on Behalf of the Copyright Claimant


As a general rule, the registration specialist will communicate with the applicant if the Name of Claimant field/space states that one party is asserting a copyright claim on behalf of another party.


Example:


• Roberta Timmons submits a paper application on Form VA to register a sculpture. Roberta is named as the author and the Name of Claimant space reads “Robinson Cruz, LLC on behalf of Roberta Timmons.” The registration specialist will communicate with the applicant, because it is unclear whether Robinson Cruz, LLC is the copyright claimant or a duly authorized agent who is submitting the copyright claim for Roberta.
