The U.S. Copyright Office is proposing to amend its regulations governing registration, recordation, licensing, and other services that the Office provides. The amendments will improve the quality of the Office's regulations by updating cross-references to the Copyright Act and the Office's regulations, replacing outdated terminology, reflecting structural changes to the Office and its senior management, eliminating expired or obsolete provisions, and correcting nonsubstantive errors. While these amendments are intended to be technical in nature, out of an abundance of caution, the Office is publishing the proposed regulations for public comment.
