803.9 (C) The Author Created Field and the Nature of Authorship Space
When completing an online application, the applicant should identify the copyrightable authorship that the applicant intends to register on the Authors screen in the field marked Author Created. When completing a paper application, the applicant should provide this information in the Nature of Authorship space on Form SR.
In all cases, the applicant should clearly and accurately describe the contribution of each author and should only refer to the material that will be submitted in the deposit copy(ies).
When completing an online application, the applicant may use the term “sound recording” to describe the performance and/or production authorship that the author contributed to the work. If this term does not fully describe the authorship that the applicant intends to register, the applicant should provide a more specific description in the field marked Other. For example, the applicant may use terms such as “remix” or “additional sound recording,” as appropriate, to describe the authorship involved in creating a derivative sound recording.
For additional guidance in completing this portion of the application, see Chapter 600, Section 618.
