807.9 Deposit Requirements for Audiovisual Works

807.9 Deposit Requirements for Audiovisual Works


For information concerning the deposit requirements for audiovisual works, see Chapter 1500, Section 1509.2 (E).


For some types of audiovisual works, the applicant may deposit identifying material instead of submitting a complete copy of the work. If the applicant uses the term “audiovisual” to describe the authorship in the work, the registration specialist will examine the deposit copy(ies) for audio and visual material. If the applicant uses specific terms, such as “music” or “sounds,” the specialist will examine the deposit copy(ies) for that type of authorship. Thus, if the applicant submits identifying material in lieu of the entire work, the identifying material should contain the authorship that is specifically claimed in the application. Otherwise, the specialist will communicate with the applicant to discuss the extent of the claim.
