803.9 (F) (1) Preexisting Liner Notes, Artwork, and Photographs

The registration specialist will require the applicant to complete the Material Excluded field if the authorship statement refers to element(s) other than the sound recording (such as the underlying work or artwork on the record jacket) and if it appears that those elements have been previously published, previously registered, or are owned by a third party.

For example, when registering an entire album together with the text and photographs in the liner notes, and when two of the photographs are previously published, the two photographs should be identified in the Material Excluded field and the entire sound recording and the text and additional photographs in the liner notes should be identified in the New Material Included field.
