621.9 (D) Claim Clarified by Information Provided Elsewhere in the Registration Materials

621.9 (D) Claim Clarified by Information Provided Elsewhere in the Registration Materials


As a general rule, if the work appears to contain an appreciable amount of unclaimable material and if the applicant fails to complete the New Material Included and/or Material Excluded fields in an online application, or fails to complete spaces 5 and/or 6 (A) and/or 6 (B) on a paper application, the registration specialist may register the work if the claim is clearly limited by information provided in the application or elsewhere in the registration materials. If so, the specialist may amend the application and/or add an annotation to the registration record to clarify the extent of the claim. If this information is not provided in the application itself, the specialist may communicate with the applicant.
