U.S. Copyright Office Proposes New Group Registration Procedure for Two-Dimensional Artwork
Issue No. 1037 - February 15, 2024
The Copyright Office has published a notice of proposed rulemaking to create a group option for registering published two-dimensional artwork. To qualify for this option, each work must be a two-dimensional pictorial or graphic work, all created by the same author, and the author must be named as the copyright claimant for each one. The works must be published within a thirty-day period, and up to ten works may be included in each submission. Applicants will be required to complete an online application and upload a digital copy of each work to the electronic registration system.
The Office seeks public comments on the proposed rulemaking, which will be considered in promulgating a final rule.
The proposed regulation and instructions on how to submit a comment are available on our website. Written comments must be received no later than April 1, 2024, at 11:59 p.m. eastern time.
