Registration of Claims to Copyright-Renewals
Document Number: E7-6174
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2007-04-04
Agency: Library of Congress, Agencies and Commissions, Copyright Office, Copyright Office, Library of Congress
The Copyright Office is proposing to amend its regulations governing applications for registration of claims to the renewal term of copyright. This notice seeks public comment on the proposed amended regulations, which will take into account the fact that, since January 1, 2006, all applications for renewal have necessarily related to works which are subject to automatic renewal and, thus, are already in their renewal terms, making impossible any 28th- year registration of claims to the renewal term.
