SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The U.S. Copyright Office has established a group registration option that allows a newsletter publisher to register an entire month of issues with one application and one filing fee. A publisher may use this option if each issue is ‘‘an all-new issue or an all-new collective work that has not been previously published.’’ 1 In addition, the newsletter ‘‘must usually’’ be published ‘‘at least two days each week.’’ 2 The word ‘‘usually’’ was added to the regulation ‘‘to account for occasional situations where the newsletter suspends publication (e.g., for a holiday).’’ 3 On February 24, 2020, the Office issued a notice of proposed rulemaking (the ‘‘NPRM’’) requesting public comment on an amendment that would extend this option to a broader range of publishers.4 The NPRM noted that it had come to the Office’s attention that many newsletters are published just once a week.5 The requirement that publication must usually occur at least twice a week renders these newsletters ineligible for this group registration option. Some newsletter publishers may be able to use the group registration option for serials (which is specifically intended for publications that are distributed at intervals of a week or longer), but to do so each issue ‘‘must be an all-new collective work.’’ 6 Thus, if a newsletter is published once a week, and if the issues in the group do not qualify as all-new collective works, the publisher may not qualify for either the group registration option for newsletters or the group registration option for serials. For these types of newsletters, the publisher must submit a separate application and filing fee for each issue. To address this issue, the NPRM proposed to eliminate the requirement that newsletters must be published at least two days a week to qualify for the 1 37 CFR 202.4(f)(1)(iii). § 202.4(f)(1)(i). 3 83 FR 22902, 22904 (May 17, 2018). 4 85 FR 10349 (Feb. 24, 2020). 5 Id. at 10350. 6 37 CFR 202.4(d)(1)(iii), (v).

Under the final rule, newsletter publishers will still be required to complete and submit an online application and upload a digital deposit to seek a group registration.9 The online application is labeled ‘‘Daily Newsletters,’’ but to be clear, this form may be used to register any newsletter, even if it is not published on a daily basis, as long as all of the issues are published within the same month. Likewise, newsletter publishers will still be required to comply with the mandatory deposit requirement if the newsletter is published in the United States in a physical form.10 To satisfy this requirement, the publisher must provide the Library of Congress with up to two complimentary subscriptions to the newsletter.11 To facilitate this process, the final rule updates the mailing address where complimentary subscription copies of newsletters and other serials should be sent.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: In a document published in the Federal 
Register on December 13, 2019, VA adopted as final, with changes, an 
interim final rule providing for reimbursement of qualifying adoption 
expenses incurred by certain veterans (84 FR 68046). The Paperwork 
Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3507) requires that VA consider the 
impact of paperwork and other information collection burdens imposed on 
the public. Under 44 U.S.C. 3507(a), an agency may not collect or 
sponsor the collection of information, nor may it impose an information 
collection requirement unless it displays a currently valid Office of 
Management and Budget (OMB) control number. See also 5 CFR 
1320.8(b)(3)(vi). As required by 44 U.S.C. 3507(d), VA submitted the 
information collection associated with Sec.  17.390 to OMB for its 
review. OMB approved the new information collection requirements 
associated with the interim final rule under a 6-month emergency 
clearance and assigned OMB control number 2900-0860, although the 
control number did not appear in Sec.  17.390 as revised by the final 
rule because the OMB control number 2900-0860 expired on March 31, 
2019. VA applied to OMB for a renewal of this information collection 
under a separate document and OMB approved the renewal of this 
information collection requirement associated with the final rule on 
March 10, 2020. This document revises Sec.  17.390 by adding the 
approved OMB control number.
