37 CFR Part 201

[Docket No. 97-5A]

Copyright Restoration of Works in Accordance With the Uruguay 
Round Agreements Act; NIE Corrections Procedure

AGENCY: Copyright Office, Library of Congress.

ACTION: Interim regulations with request for comments.


SUMMARY: The Copyright Office is issuing interim regulations to govern 
the filing of Correction Notices of Intent to Enforce a Restored 
Copyright under section 104A of the copyright law, as amended by the 
Uruguay Round Agreements Act. The effect of the interim regulation is 
to establish procedures for the correction of errors in previously 
filed Notices of Intent to Enforce a Restored Copyright and to provide 
a suggested format for submitting such information.

DATES: This interim regulation is effective October 28, 1997. Comments 
should be in writing and received on or before November 12, 1997.

ADDRESSES: If delivered by hand, an original and ten (10) copies of 
comments should be delivered to: Library of Congress, Office of the 
General Counsel, Copyright Office, James Madison Memorial Building, 
Room LM-403, First and Independence Avenue, SE., Washington, DC 20540. 
If sent by mail, an original and ten (10) copies of comments should be 
addressed to: David Carson, General Counsel, Copyright GC/I&R, PO Box 
70400, Southwest Station, Washington, DC 20024.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Charlotte Douglass, Principal Legal 
Advisor to the General Counsel, Copyright GC/I&R, PO Box 70400, 
Southwest Station, Washington, DC 20024. Telephone: (202) 707-8380. 
Telefax: (202) 707-8366.



    On December 8, 1994, President Clinton signed the ``Uruguay Round 
Agreements Act'' (URAA), Pub. L. 103-465, 108 Stat. 4809. The URAA 
restored copyright in certain foreign works from any country that, from 
January 1, 1996, forward, is a member of the Berne Convention for the 
Protection of Literary and Artistic Works, a member of the World Trade 
Organization (WTO), or subject to a Presidential Proclamation 
determining eligibility. 60 FR 7793 (Feb. 9, 1995); Proclamation No. 
6780, 60 FR 15845 (Mar. 27, 1995). Nationals of such countries have 
copyright automatically restored in their works effective on the first 
date the particular source country becomes a country in any of the 
above-listed three categories. However, to be restored, works must meet 
certain other requirements. Such works must:
    (1) Not be in the public domain in its source country through 
expiration of the term of protection;
    (2) Be in the public domain in the United States due to 
noncompliance with formalities imposed at any time by United States 
copyright law, lack of subject matter protection in the case of sound 
recordings fixed before February 15, 1972, or lack of national 
    (3) Have at least one author or rightholder who was, at the time 
the work was created, a national or domiciliary of an eligible country;
    (4) If published, be first published in an eligible country and not 
published in the United States during the 30-day period following 
publication in such eligible country.
    Notwithstanding the fact that the work meets the above 
requirements, any work ever owned or administered by the Alien Property 
Custodian and in which the restored copyright would be owned by a 
government or instrumentality thereof, is not a restored work. 17 
U.S.C. 104A(a)(2).

[[Page 55737]]

    Although copyright restoration is automatic for eligible works, a 
copyright owner's enforcement of its copyright against a reliance party 
is subject to notice to the reliance party and a waiting period. 
Reliance parties, in general, are persons who obtained copies of the 
works or were already using the works before the URAA was enacted (Dec. 
8, 1994). 17 U.S.C. 104A(h)(4). Specifically, a reliance party is any 
person who:

    (A) With respect to a particular work, engages in acts, before 
the source country of that work becomes an eligible country, which 
would have violated section 106 if the restored work had been 
subject to copyright protection, and who, after the source country 
becomes an eligible country, continues to engage in such acts;
    (B) Before the source country of a particular work becomes an 
eligible country, makes or acquires 1 or more copies or phonorecords 
of that work; or
    (C) As the result of the sale or other disposition of a 
derivative work covered under subsection (d)(3), or significant 
assets of a person described in subparagraph (A) or (B), is a 
successor, assignee, or licensee of that person.

    The copyright owner must file with the Copyright Office a Notice of 
Intent to Enforce (NIE) its restored copyright or must individually 
serve such notice on a reliance party and must wait a period of twelve 
months before enforcing a restored copyright against a reliance party. 
A reliance party may be found liable for infringement beginning twelve 
months after Federal Register publication of the Notice of Intent to 
Enforce the copyright in the restored work or twelve months after a 
notice has been individually served on the reliance party, whichever is 
earlier. 17 U.S.C. 104A(d)(2). Thus, the reliance party receives a 12 
month grace period during which it may use the restored work without 
paying licensing fees or securing permission for such use from the 
restored copyright owner. Id., The Uruguay Round Trade Agreements, Text 
of Agreements, Implementing Bill, Statement of Administrative Action, 
and Required Supporting Statements, H.R. Doc. No. 316, 103d Cong., 2d 
Sess. 324 (1994).
    NIEs filed in the Copyright Office receive the benefit of 
constructive notice; that is, all persons are deemed to have notice of 
the NIE upon the Copyright Office's publication in the Federal Register 
of an NIE for a restored work. Cf. 17 U.S.C. 104A(c). Thus, the Federal 
Register publication begins the 12-month grace period concerning a 
particular restored work for all reliance parties, whereas the 
individually served NIE begins the 12-month period for only those 
reliance parties served, and any other reliance party with actual 
knowledge of such service and the contents of the notice.
    Recording NIEs and publishing in the Federal Register the NIE 
titles and owners of restored copyright is part of the Copyright Office 
responsibilities pursuant to the URAA. 17 U.S.C. 104A(e)(1)(B). 
Regulations have been issued for such filings as well as special 
regulations for registration of claims to copyright under the URAA. 60 
FR 50414 (Sept. 29, 1995).
    As part of the Office's responsibility regarding NIEs, the Office 
has proposed rules for recording corrections to NIEs, both those NIEs 
containing major errors and those containing minor errors. The URAA 
allows a party who has filed an NIE with the Copyright Office to 
correct minor errors or omissions by further notice at any time after 
the original NIE is filed. 17 U.S.C. 104A(e)(1)(A)(iii). The procedures 
and fees for filing a correction to an NIE are essentially the same as 
those for filing an original NIE, except that the party making the 
correction should refer, on the corrected NIE, to the previous NIE's 
volume and document number in the Copyright Office Documents Records, 
if known. For purposes of determining the appropriate filing period, 
the Office will regard NIEs correcting major errors as new NIEs. Such 
NIEs must, therefore, be filed within the initial two year period of 
eligibility to be accepted as timely.

I. Proposed Rule To Establish Correction Notices of Intent To 

    On July 30, 1997, the Office proposed regulations to govern the 
filing of Correction Notices of Intent to Enforce a Restored Copyright 
(Correction Notices or Correction NIEs). This rule proposed procedures 
to correct major and minor errors and provided a format which the 
Office suggested for submitting Correction Notices. The procedures (1) 
detailed who may file a Correction Notice, (2) distinguished between 
major and minor error, (3) explained that multiple NIEs could be 
submitted for the same work where the work had multiple owners and (4) 
noted that while NIEs could be withdrawn within a short time after 
filing, the Office will not cancel a recorded NIE.

II. Comment

    The Office received one comment in response to the publication of 
its proposed rule, from the Motion Picture Association of America 
(MPAA). This organization pointed out what it considered an inherent 
ambiguity in the URAA provision for minor errors but not other errors, 
in that sec. 104A(e)A(ii) of Title 17 permits the correction of minor 
errors at any time, even after the 24-month filing period, thereby 
leaving open the consideration of whether and when other errors may be 
corrected, and what effect such errors may have. One potential effect 
relates to when infringement remedies may be awarded against reliance 
parties. Under the URAA, sec. 104A(d)(2), such parties' continued use 
of a restored copyright after a 12-month period following the 
publication in the Federal Register of the title and owner of a 
restored work as listed in an NIE is subject to infringement remedies. 
The MPAA suggested that the Office provide by regulation that 
infringement remedies are available only after publication of 
Correction NIEs.

III. Response

    The Office addresses this comment regarding the ``inherent 
ambiguity'' of the URAA provision for correction of minor errors by 
looking to what appears to be Congress' underlying intent--to shield 
the public from prejudicial errors, i.e., those errors which would 
impede efforts by members of the public to ascertain the possible 
restored status of a work while assisting the NIE filer in the creation 
of an improved and corrected public record where a harmless error had 
been made. See 17 U.S.C. 104A(e)(3). While the Office has no statutory 
authority to establish the date on which infringement remedies are 
available, the distinguishing of major and minor errors facilitates the 
administration of NIEs where errors in an originally filed NIE may be 
of such a substantial nature that the initial NIE does not adequately 
and reasonably identify the restored work. Further, an administrative 
procedure recognizing the distinction between an error which would not 
impede the public's locating within Copyright Office records 
information for a given restored work and an error in an NIE which 
would prevent the public from being informed of the restored status for 
a particular work allows for a more reliable and useful public record 
and may possibly facilitate judicial determination of when adequate 
notice concerning a restored work occurred.
    The Office concludes that major errors are those which pertain to 
the statutorily required information in the Copyright Office NIE 
filings: name of the copyright owner or rightholder, title of the work 
(but not the translation, if any) and the written agency relationship. 
Where the Office determines an error to be major, a Correction NIE must 
be filed within the two year period of eligibility. NIE filings

[[Page 55738]]

with the Office are voluntary. In the absence of a timely filing in the 
Office, the URAA allows a copyright owner of a restored work to serve 
an individual notice on a reliance party at any time after the date of 
restoration of the restored copyright to trigger a reliance party's 12-
month period to use the restored work within the terms of the statute. 
17 U.S.C. 104A(e)(2).
    Based on the foregoing discussion, these interim regulations are 
essentially unchanged, except for minor technical amendments.

IV. Procedures for Correction Notices of Intent to Enforce

A. Who May File a Correction Notice of Intent To Enforce (Correction 

    Correction NIEs may be filed by or on behalf of the same copyright 
owner or rightholder who filed the original NIE. The ``same copyright 
owner'' includes successors in interest.
    A certification by a third party is not sufficient to authorize a 
correction of an earlier NIE recorded in the name of another party/
copyright owner, unless that third party is also the authorized agent 
of the copyright owner in whose name the original NIE was recorded. An 
authorized agent may file a Correction NIE whether or not that agent 
filed the original NIE.

B. Definition of Major and Minor Error

    The Copyright Office concludes that major errors, not defined or 
referenced within the statutory provisions, may be corrected only 
within the two-year period of eligibility for initially filing NIEs. 
Minor errors may be corrected at any time under the URAA provisions. 
(17 U.S.C. 104A(e), as amended).
    The Office has determined that major errors are errors concerning 
the following NIE statutory requirements: the name of the copyright 
owner or rightholder; the title of the work (as opposed to its 
translation, if any); and a written agency relationship, if applicable. 
The Office considers these items of information to be basic identifiers 
crucial to the effectiveness of adequately informing the public of the 
existence and ownership of a particular work which is subject to a 
Notice of Intent to Enforce. The title of a work and the identity of 
the rights owner in the work, including correct information regarding 
an agent of the rights owner, if an agency relationship existed, must 
be present in the Copyright Office NIE records in order for the NIE 
filer to meet the requirements of the statute and to allow the public 
through a reasonable search to locate the essential information within 
Office NIE records about a given work restored to copyright under the 
URAA. Where the original NIE did not adequately identify the owner of 
the restored work, the title of the restored work or the agency 
relationship, the Office will refuse to record a Correction NIE that is 
submitted after the two-year period following a work's restoration to 
copyright protection.
    Adequate identification of a restored work means that accurate and 
sufficient information concerning the three statutorily required items 
of owner identity, title, and agency relationship, if any, is present 
in the original NIE. The necessary accuracy and sufficiency of 
information for the original NIE includes, but is not limited to, 
completeness of the information, accurate spelling of names and titles, 
and correct sequencing of wording within names and titles so that a 
reasonable search of the NIE records will reveal the work in question. 
The following are examples where original NIEs contain information 
which would not result in a reasonable search revealing the actual, 
correct title or owner identity for the restored work:

Title in original NIE: Robert Meets the Green Rabbit Again
Title in Correction NIE: Here We Go Again--The Green Rabbit and 
Title in original NIE: Now Are the Times That Try Men's Souls
Title in Correction NIE: Trying Times for Mankind
Owner in original NIE: Kathy and Lori Film Production, Inc.
Owner in Correction NIE: Kathy Lorenzo and Lori Lorenzo

    Where the two-year period has expired and where there is doubt as 
to whether an error is major or minor, i.e., whether the erroneous NIE 
is such that it would fail to inform members of the public doing a 
reasonable search of the Copyright Office records of the existence of a 
work that is subject to a Notice of Intent to Enforce, the Office will 
correspond with the filer concerning the doubt and, if appropriate, may 
resolve the doubt in favor of the filer and record the Correction NIE .
    Because the regulations of the Copyright Office allow the 
recordation of any document pertaining to a copyright, in instances 
where the Office refuses the recordation of a Correction NIE because 
the two-year period of eligibility for initial filing of an NIE has 
passed, a party may record any document, including one concerning 
rights restored under the URAA for a given work, but may not designate 
the document on its face to be a Notice of Intent to Enforce or a 
Correction Notice of Intent to Enforce. See 37 CFR 201.4 for Copyright 
Office regulations on recordation of transfers and other documents. All 
documents, including NIEs and Correction NIEs, submitted for 
recordation with the Office are found within the same bibliographic 
database and a reasonable search by title or owner should reveal all 
recordations filed with the Office concerning the same title or owner 

C. Designation for a Correction Notice of Intent to Enforce

    A Correction NIE must be clearly indicated as such, i.e., the 
document filed should bear the title ``Correction Notice of Intent To 
Enforce,'' or ``Correction NIE.'' It must also specify the volume and 
document number for the recordation of the original NIE. This will 
enable the Office to record the correction with the appropriate cross-
reference to the volume and document number of the original NIE.

D. Format Information for Correction NIEs

    The suggested format for filing Correction NIEs generally follows 
the outline of the suggested format for the original filing. This is 
included as Appendix A below.
    The format will be made available over the Internet from where it 
can be downloaded for use. Where a party wishes to correct in the same 
filing NIEs for many titles, he or she can adapt the suggested format 
to allow more space for titles. Use of the format enables the filer to 
furnish information prescribed by the original NIE regulation in 
orderly form.
    When information (either required or optional) has been correctly 
given on the original NIE, the Correction NIE need not repeat that 
information. Filers should include information in the Correction NIE, 
however, that was omitted from the previous NIE which will help 
identify the restored work(s) involved.
    Correction NIEs must be in English, except for the original title, 
and either typed or printed by hand legibly in dark, preferably black, 
ink. They should be on 8\1/2\'' by 11'' white paper of good quality, 
with at least a 1'' (or 3 cm) margin.

E. Fees

    The fee for a correction is the same as that for an initial NIE: 
for one work, the fee is thirty U.S. Dollars; for multiple works that 
meet the conditions for being filed on the same NIE, the fee is thirty 
U.S. Dollars for the first work, plus one dollar for each additional 
work. For NIE

[[Page 55739]]

filings, including corrections, see 37 CFR 201.33(e) for fee 
    The filing fee partially reimburses the Office for its processing 
costs; the Office, therefore, does not refund fees for errors made by 
filers in NIEs.

V. Multiple NIEs for the Same Work and Correction Cross-References

    When rights in a restored work are owned by several different 
parties, multiple NIEs for the same work may be submitted. For example, 
one person may own the exclusive right of reproduction and public 
distribution and another the exclusive right of public performance. 
When a work has multiple rights owners, each owner must file a separate 
NIE subject to the requirements for initial filing within two years of 
eligibility to receive the benefit of NIE filing. In the instance of 
multiple owners of rights in a single work, if a party is acting on 
behalf of an earlier owner of record in an NIE and purporting to 
correct that earlier NIE, the Office points out that only the NIE 
record in the name of that particular earlier owner will be cross-
referenced. Nevertheless, all NIE records for a given title will be 
easily retrievable as a group; if the works as recorded bear the same 
title, the NIE records would appear together in any title search of 
online records.

VI. Cancellations and Withdrawals

    The Office will not cancel a recordation of an NIE unless the 
recordation fee is uncollectible. While the recordation of NIEs may 
not, with the exception of an uncollectible fee, be canceled (i.e., 
expunged from the record), a request to record an NIE may be withdrawn 
if the request to withdraw is received before the record of the NIE has 
been made available to the public through the Internet. In order to 
withdraw an NIE, the filer must contact the Documents Unit of the 
Copyright Office before the online record (Copyright Office Publication 
and Interactive Cataloging System (COPICS)) has been made publicly 
available. If the Office has prepared the record for a work that is 
later withdrawn, it will not refund the fee.

VII. Publication of Additional NIE List

    Under the URAA, the Office must publish the Federal Register list 
of NIEs processed by the Office every four months. 17 U.S.C. 
104A(e)(1)(B)(i). Accordingly, lists have been published beginning on 
May 1, 1996. (61 FR 19372 (May 1, 1996); 61 FR 46134 (Aug. 30, 1996); 
61 FR 68454 (Dec. 27, 1996); 62 FR 20211 (April 25, 1997) and 62 FR 
44842 (Aug. 22, 1997)). The Office will publish its next list on 
December 19, 1997. This list will include NIEs received and processed 
in the Office through December 5, 1997. The final Federal Register list 
for works from countries that became eligible to file on January 1, 
1996, is scheduled to be published on January 30, 1998. Cf. 17 U.S.C. 
104A(e)(1)(B)(ii). This will include NIEs previously received in the 
Office but unprocessed by December 5, 1997, and NIEs received between 
December 5, 1997, and December 31, 1997, inclusive.
    Correction NIEs for major errors and new NIEs from source countries 
that became eligible to file on January 1, 1996, must be postmarked by 
December 31, 1997, to be accepted for January Federal Register 
publication. Correction NIEs for minor errors are acceptable at any 
time following eligibility, but the Office will not publish such minor 
corrections in the Federal Register.

Interim Regulation

    In consideration of the foregoing, the Copyright Office amends 37 
CFR part 201 in the manner set forth below:


    1. The authority citation for part 201 is revised to read as 

    Authority: 17 U.S.C. 702.

    2. Section 201.34 is added to read as follows:

Sec. 201.34  Procedures for filing Correction Notices of Intent to 
Enforce a Copyright Restored under the Uruguay Round Agreements Act.

    (a) General. This section prescribes the procedures for submission 
of corrections of Notices of Intent to Enforce a Copyright (NIEs) 
Restored under the Uruguay Round Agreements Act of December 8, 1994, as 
required by 17 U.S.C. 104A(e), as amended by Pub. L. 103-465, 108 Stat. 
4809, 4976 (1994).
    (b) Definitions. For purposes of this section, the following 
definitions apply.
    (1) Major error. A major error in filing a Notice of Intent to 
Enforce a Copyright Restored under the Uruguay Round Agreements Act is 
an error in the name of the copyright owner or rightholder, or in the 
title of the work (as opposed to its translation, if any) where such 
error fails to adequately identify the restored work or its owner 
through a reasonable search of the Copyright Office NIE records. 
Omission of, or incorrect information regarding, a written agency 
relationship also constitutes a major error.
    (2) Minor error. A minor error in filing a Notice of Intent to 
Enforce a Copyright Restored under the Uruguay Round Agreements Act is 
any error that is not a major error.
    (3) Restored work. For the definition of works restored under the 
URAA, see 37 CFR 201.33.
    (c) Forms. The Copyright Office does not provide forms for 
Correction Notices of Intent to Enforce filed with the Copyright 
Office. It requests that filers of such Correction NIEs follow the 
format set out in Appendix A of this section and give all information 
listed in paragraph (d) of this section. Correction NIEs must be in 
English, and should be typed or legibly printed by hand in dark, 
preferably black ink, on 8\1/2\'' by 11'' white paper of good quality 
with at least a 1'' (or three cm) margin.
    (d) Requirements for Correction Notice of Intent to Enforce a 
Copyright Restored under the Uruguay Round Agreements Act. (1) A 
correction for a Notice of Intent to Enforce should be clearly 
designated as a ``Correction Notice of Intent to Enforce'' or 
``Correction NIE.''
    (2) Correction Notices of Intent to Enforce should be sent to the 
following address: URAA/GATT, NIEs and Registrations, PO Box 70400, 
Southwest Station, Washington, DC 20024, USA.
    (3) A Correction NIE shall contain the following information:
    (i) The volume and document number of the previous NIE which is to 
be corrected;
    (ii) The title of the work as it appears on the previous NIE, 
including alternative titles, if they appear;
    (iii) The English translation of the title, if any, as it appears 
on the previous NIE;
    (iv) A statement of the erroneous information as it appears on the 
previous NIE;
    (v) A statement of the correct information as it should have 
appeared and an optional explanation of its correction; or
    (vi) A statement of the information to be added. This includes 
optional information such as:
    (A) Type of work;
    (B) Rights owned by the party on whose behalf the Correction Notice 
is filed;
    (C) Name of author;
    (D) Source country;
    (E) Year of publication;
    (F) Alternative titles;
    (G) An optional explanation of the added information.
    (vii) The name and address:
    (A) To which correspondence concerning the document should be sent; 

[[Page 55740]]

    (B) To which the acknowledgment of the recordation of the 
Correction NIE should be mailed; and
    (viii) A certification. The certification shall consist of:
    (A) A statement that, for each of the works named above, the person 
signing the Correction NIE is the copyright owner, or the owner of an 
exclusive right, or the owner's authorized agent, and that the 
information is correct to the best of that person's knowledge;
    (B) The typed or printed name of the person whose signature 
    (C) The signature and date of signature; and
    (D) The telephone and telefax number at which the owner, 
rightholder, or agent thereof can be reached.
    (4) A Correction NIE may cover multiple works in multiple NIE 
documents for one fee provided that: each work is identified by title; 
all the works are by the same author; all the works are owned by the 
same copyright owner or owner of an exclusive right. In the case of 
Correction NIEs, the notice must separately designate each title to be 
corrected, noting the incorrect information as it appeared on the 
previously filed NIE, as well as the corrected information. A single 
notice covering multiple titles need bear only a single certification.
    (5) Copies, phonorecords or supporting documents cannot be made 
part of the record of a Correction NIE and should not be submitted with 
the document.
    (6) Time for Submitting Correction NIEs.
    (i) Major errors. The Copyright Office will accept a Correction NIE 
for a major error concerning a restored work during the 24-month period 
beginning on the date of restoration of the work, as provided for 
original NIEs in section 104A(d)(2)(A) of title 17.
    (ii) Minor errors. The Office will accept a Correction NIE for a 
minor error or omission concerning a restored work at any time after 
the original NIE has been filed, as provided in section 
104A(e)(1)(A)(iii) of title 17.
    (e) Fee.--(1) Amount. The filing fee for recording Correction NIEs 
is 30 U.S. dollars for each Correction Notice covering one work. For 
single Correction NIEs covering multiple works, that is, for works by 
the same author and owned by the same copyright owner or owner of an 
exclusive right, the fee is 30 U.S. dollars, plus one dollar for each 
additional work covered beyond the first designated work.
    (2) Method of payment. See 37 CFR 201.33(e)(1),(2).
    (f) Public online access. Information contained in the Correction 
Notice of Intent to Enforce is available online in the Copyright Office 
History Documents (COHD) file through the Library of Congress 
electronic information system, available through the Internet. This 
file is available from computer terminals located in the Copyright 
Office itself or from terminals located in other parts of the Library 
of Congress through the Library of Congress Information System (LOCIS). 
Alternative ways to connect through Internet are the World Wide Web 
(WWW), using the Copyright Office Home Page at: http:/www.loc.gov/
copyright; directly to LOCIS through the telnet address at 
locis.loc.gov; or the Library of Congress through gopher LC MARVEL and 
WWW which are available 24 hours a day. LOCIS is available 24 hours a 
day, Monday through Friday. For the purpose of researching the full 
Office record of Correction NIEs on the Internet, the Office has made 
online searching instructions accessible through the Copyright Office 
Home Page. Researchers can access them through the Library of Congress 
Home Page on the World Wide Web by selecting the copyright link. Select 
the menu item ``Copyright Office Records'' and/or ``URAA, GATT Amends
