621.9 (D) (4) Claim Clarified by Information Provided in Space 5 of the Paper Application


If the applicant fails to complete spaces 6 (A) and/or 6 (B) in a paper application, the registration specialist may register the claim without communicating with the applicant, if the applicant has completed space 5. (This portion of the application poses the following question to the applicant: “Has registration for this work, or for an earlier version of this work, already been made in the Copyright Office?”) Specifically if the applicant checked box “c” in space 5, the specialist may register the claim without communicating with the applicant, provided that the work appears to be “a changed version of the work.”
