(B) Credit cards, debit cards and electronic funds transfer. The online preregistration filing system will provide options for payment by means of credit or debit cards and by means of electronic funds transfers. Applicants will be redirected to the Department of Treasury’s Pay.gov website to make payments with credit or debit cards, or directly from their bank accounts by means of ACH debit transactions. (C) No refunds. The fee is not refundable. (6) Description. No deposit of the work being preregistered should be submitted with an application for preregistration. The preregistration applicant should submit a detailed description, of not more than 2,000 characters (approximately 330 words), of the work as part of the application. The description should be based on information available at the time of the application sufficient to reasonably identify the work. The Copyright Office will not review descriptions for adequacy except in extreme cases, but in an action for infringement of a preregistered work, the court may evaluate the adequacy of the description to determine whether the preregistration actually describes the work that is alleged to be infringed, taking into account the information available to the applicant at the time of preregistration. For motion pictures such a description should include the following information to the extent known at the time of filing: subject matter, a summary or outline, the director, the primary actors, the principal location of filming, and any other information that would assist in identifying the particular work being preregistered. For sound recordings and for nondramatic musical works, the identifying description should include the following information to the extent known at the time of filing: the subject matter of the work or works recorded, the performer or performing group, the genre of the work recorded (e.g., classical, pop, musical comedy, soft rock, heavy metal, gospel, rap, hip–hop, blues, jazz), the titles of the musical compositions being recorded, the principal recording location, and the composer(s) of the recorded musical compositions embodied on the sound recording and any other information that would assist in identifying the particular work being preregistered. (7) Examination. The Copyright Office will conduct only a limited examination of applications for preregistration, in VerDate jul<14>2003 15:40 Jul 21, 2005 Jkt 205001 order to ascertain whether the application describes a work that is in a class of works that the Register of Copyrights has determined has had a history of infringement prior to authorized commercial release. However, a work will not be preregistered unless an applicant has provided all of the information requested on the application and has certified that all of the information provided on the application is correct to the best of the applicant’s knowledge. (8) Notification of preregistration. Upon completion of the preregistration, the Copyright Office will provide the claimant notification by email of the preregistration. The preregistration record will also be available to the public on the Copyright Office website, www.copyright.gov. (9) Effect of preregistration. Preregistration of a work offers certain advantages to a copyright owner pursuant to 17 U.S.C. 411 and 412. However, preregistration of a work is not prima facie evidence of the validity of the copyright or of the facts stated in the application for preregistration or in the preregistration record. The fact that a work has been preregistered does not create any presumption that the Copyright Office will register the work upon submission of an application for registration.
