(2) Before using any approved AMOC, notify your appropriate principal inspector, or lacking a principal inspector, the manager of the local flight standards district office/ certificate holding district office. (3) An AMOC that provides an acceptable level of safety may be used for any repair, modification, or alteration required by this AD if it is approved by the Boeing Commercial Airplanes Organization Designation Authorization (ODA) that has been authorized by the Manager, Seattle ACO Branch, FAA, to make those findings. To be approved, the repair method, modification deviation, or alteration deviation must meet the certification basis of the airplane, and the approval must specifically refer to this AD.

ACTION: Notice of proposed rulemaking. AGENCY: VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:37 Dec 21, 2018 Jkt 247001 The Copyright Office is proposing to amend its regulations pertaining to the registration of architectural works. To improve the efficiency of this process, applicants will be required to submit their claims through the online application process, rather than a paper application, and they will be encouraged to upload a digital copy of their works through the electronic registration system, instead of submitting a physical copy. The proposed rule also clarifies that a date of construction is needed only if the architectural work was embodied in unpublished plans or drawings on or before December 1, 1990 and if the work was constructed before January 1, 2003. The Office invites public comment on the proposed changes. DATES: Comments on the proposed rule must be made in writing and must be received in the U.S. Copyright Office no later than February 11, 2019. ADDRESSES: For reasons of government efficiency, the Copyright Office is using the regulations.gov system for the submission and posting of public comments in this proceeding. All comments are therefore to be submitted electronically through regulations.gov. Specific instructions for submitting comments are available on the Copyright Office website at http:// www.copyright.gov/rulemaking/ architecturalworks/. If electronic submission of comments is not feasible due to lack of access to a computer and/ or the internet, please contact the Office using the contact information below for special instructions. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Robert J. Kasunic, Associate Register of Copyrights and Director of Registration Policy and Practice; Erik Bertin, Deputy Director of Registration Policy and Practice; Jordana Rubel, Assistant General Counsel by telephone at 202– 707–8040 or by email at rkas@ copyright.gov, ebertin@copyright.gov, and jrubel@copyright.gov. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: As part of the U.S. Copyright Office’s ongoing effort to improve the quality and readability of its regulations, the Office is proposing to amend the rules governing the registration of architectural works, which have remained essentially unchanged since 1992. 57 FR 45307 (Oct. 1, 1992); 68 FR 38630 (June 30, 2003). The regulation pertaining to the registration and application requirements is set forth in 37 CFR 202.11, the regulation governing the deposit requirements for registration is set forth in 37 CFR 202.20(c)(2)(xviii). The regulation governing the mandatory deposit requirements, set forth in 37 SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00020 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 CFR 202.19(d)(2)(viii), will remain unchanged. The Office welcomes comments on these proposed changes. Application Requirements The current regulation states that applicants must use a paper application to register an architectural work and that the claim must be submitted on Form VA. 37 CFR 202.11(c)(3). This does not reflect the Office’s current practices. Since 2008, the Office has accepted claims submitted through the Office’s electronic registration system (‘‘eCO’’), and in fact, many architecture claims are filed in this manner. Under the proposed rule, applicants will be required to submit their claims through the eCO system using the Standard Application. The Office will no longer accept architectural works submitted for registration on a paper application using Form VA. If a paper application is received after the effective date of this rule, the Office will refuse registration and instruct the applicant to resubmit the claim on the Standard Application.1 A substantial majority of the U.S. population has access to the internet, and the Office expects that most architects will be able to use the electronic system. See 81 FR 86643, 86648 & nn. 15–16 (Dec. 1, 2016). Architects typically use sophisticated computer software to create their works, and thus, should be capable of using the Standard Application to register their claims.2 The Office believes that requiring applicants to use the Standard Application, rather than Form VA, is necessary to improve the overall efficiency of the registration process. Most claims submitted on Form VA require correspondence or other action from the Office. Applicants often fail to provide information expressly requested on the form, or add extraneous information that is not requested. In 1 The Office recently issued a notice of proposed rulemaking clarifying that the Single Application may not be used to register an architectural work. The Single Application is an electronic application designed ‘‘for those authors who file the simplest kind of [claim].’’ 78 FR 38843, 38845 (June 28, 2013). Architecture claims are not a good fit for this application because they tend to be very complex. 83 FR 5227, 5228 (Feb. 6, 2017). To avoid potential confusion, the proposed rule removes the word ‘‘single’’ wherever it appears in the regulation on architectural works. 2 As with other rules recently promulgated by the Office, the proposed rule would allow the Office to waive the online filing requirement in exceptional cases. Applicants who do not have internet access and are unable to use the Standard Application may request a waiver in writing. The Office will review each request and will make accommodations for applicants who receive a waiver, such as making staff available to assist with filling out the application.
