SUMMARY: The Copyright Office is making non-substantive amendments to 
its regulations to reflect a reorganization that has moved the 
Recordation function from the Visual Arts and Recordation Division of 
the Registration and Recordation Program to the Information and Records 
Division. As a result of this reorganization, the name of the 
Registration and Recordation Program has been changed to the 
Registration Program.

DATES:  Effective Date: May 13, 2011.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Elizabeth Scheffler, Chief Operating 
Officer, Copyright GC/I&R, P.O. Box 70400, Washington, DC 20024.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On February 13, 2011, the Copyright Office 
implemented a reorganization, commenced in December 2010, that moved 
the recordation function from the Visual Arts and Recordation Division 
of the Registration and Recordation Program to the Information and 
Records Division. As a result of the reorganization, the Registration 
and Recordation Program has been renamed the Registration Program. The 
Documents Recordation Team, which was part of the Visual Arts Division 
of the Registration and Recordation Program, has been renamed the 
Recordation Section of the Information and Records Division.
    The Recordation Section processes the recordation of transfers of 
copyright ownership and other documents pertaining to a copyright under 
section 205 of the Copyright Act, the recordation of notices of 
termination of transfers and licenses under sections 203 and 304(c) and 
(d) of the Copyright Act, and designations of agents of online service 
providers to receive notification of claims of infringement under 
section 512(c) of the Copyright Act.
    This reorganization better aligns and leverages the skill sets of 
Recordation staff with similar skill sets required of staff in the 
Records Research and Certification Section of the Information and 
Records Division. The Office believes that the reorganization will 
result in timelier processing of recordations and make the public 
record available in a more timely fashion.
    Parts 202, 203, and 211 of the Copyright Office Regulations 
currently refer to the Registration and Recordation Program. In order 
to reflect the change in the name of the Program, the provisions of
