619.6 Naming the Author as Claimant

 

If the author owns all the rights under the copyright as of the date that the application is filed, the author must be named in the application as the copyright claimant. An application to register the copyright in the author’s name may be certified and submitted by the author or by the author’s duly authorized agent. In this situation, the author is considered the claimant and the author or the author’s agent is considered the applicant (dependent upon who certified and submitted the application.)
