803.9 (A) Type of Work


803.9 (A) Type of Work

If the applicant intends to register a sound recording or a sound recording combined with the underlying musical work, dramatic work, or literary work embodied in that recording, the applicant must select “Sound Recording” when completing the online application or must use Form SR when completing a paper application. 37 C.F.R. § 202.3 (B) (2)(iii).


NOTE: If the applicant attempts to register a sound recording as a “Work of the Performing Arts” or with Form PA (or selects any other Type of Work other than “Sound Recording” or uses any paper application other than Form SR), the registration specialist will change the Type of Work to “Sound Recording” or change the application to a Form SR without communicating with the applicant.
