Limitation of Claim Screen Updated

The onscreen instructions on the Limitation of Claim screen have been updated to include guidance on the types of material that may be excluded from the claim to copyright. Included among these types is “material generated by artificial intelligence”. This change was made to assist applicants in following the Copyright Office's March 16, 2023 statement of policy providing copyright registration guidance for works containing material generated by artificial intelligence.
