621.8 (A) Identifying the Material That the Author Created


To register a claim to copyright, the applicant should identify all the copyrightable material that the applicant intends to register.


When completing an online application, the applicant should provide this information on the Authors screen by checking one or more of the boxes that appear under the heading Author Created. When completing a paper application, the applicant should


provide this information in space 2 of the application under the heading Nature of Authorship.


For guidance on completing this portion of the application, see Sections 618.4 (A) and 618.4 (B). For guidance on completing this portion of the application for a compilation or a collective work, see Sections 618.6 and 618.7.


As a general rule, the information that the applicant provides in the Author Created field should be identical to the information that the applicant provides in the New Material Included field. Likewise, the information that the applicant provides in the Nature of Authorship space should be identical to the information that the applicant provides in space 6 (B).


For guidance in completing the New Material Included field and space 6 (B), see Section 621.8 (C).
