Group Registration for Works on an Album of Music (GRAM)

The Copyright Office will implement a new group registration option for musical works that are published on the same album.

In addition, the Office will implement a separate group registration option for sound recordings and any accompanying photographs, artwork, or liner notes that are published on the same album.

Applicants will be required to use a new registration form application specifically designed for each option. The new applications forms are expected to be released in the spring of 2021.

Instructions for completing the applications will be provided on this page when this option becomes available. Resources and guides for the GRAM registration procedure will also be added to this page as they go online.
