620.10 (D) (2) Same Person Is Named as Author and Claimant


As a general rule, if the author and the claimant are the same person, the registration specialist may accept an application without a transfer statement even if the names provided in the fields/spaces for the Name of Author and the Name of Claimant are different. For examples that illustrate this practice, see Sections 620.10 (D) (2) (A) and 620.10 (D) (2) (B) below.
