Library of Congress July 16, 2014 – Federal Register Recent Federal Regulation Documents

Changes to Recordation Practices
Document Number: 2014-16726
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2014-07-16
Agency: Library of Congress, Agencies and Commissions
The U.S. Copyright Office is proposing to amend its regulations for the recordation of copyright transfers and other documents. The proposed rule is intended to reduce the amount of time the Office requires to process certain types of documents submitted for recordation and help to alleviate remitter concerns regarding the receipt of documents for processing. To these ends, the Office is proposing to amend the regulations to encourage remitters to include a cover sheet with the documents they submit for processing; allow remitters to submit long title lists in electronic format; and provide remitters with the option to request return receipts that acknowledge that the Office has received a submission. The Office invites public comment on the proposed rule.
