Copyright Office June 2019 – Federal Register Recent Federal Regulation Documents

Copyright Office Fees
Document Number: 2019-12976
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2019-06-21
Agency: Library of Congress, Agencies and Commissions, Copyright Office
As part of its ongoing fee study, the Copyright Office proposes limited revisions to its previously proposed fee schedule relating to document recordation and new prospective group registration options. The proposed modifications would adjust the fee structure for document recordation from a fee formula based on the number of titles to a formula based on the number of works and alternate titles and registration numbers to which a document pertains, and make certain other clarifications. The Office is also noticing its intention to issue fees for its previously-proposed group registration options for short online literary works and for works contained on an album of music. The Office is providing an opportunity to the public to comment on these specific proposed changes before the Office's fee schedule is submitted to Congress.
