An alternate streamlined application path for certain claims will be introduced. When beginning a registration application, you will answer three questions to determine whether the information will be entered using the new Single application or with the Standard series of screens.

If you are registering one work, created and solely owned by the same individual (not "made for hire"), you will use the more streamlined Single application screens to enter information. Otherwise, you will use the Standard screens to complete the application.

The following categories of work may not be registered using the Single application: collective works, unpublished collections, units of publication, group registration options, databases, websites, works by more than one author, and works with more than one owner.
