Copyright Office Introduces Online Supplementary Registration
Issue No. 669 - June 15, 2017

The U.S. Copyright Office announces that, as of July 17, it will for the first time begin accepting applications for supplementary copyright registration—used to correct or amplify information set forth in a basic registration—through the Office’s online registration system. Applicants will generally be required to file applications for supplementary registration online. The Office has also made other changes to the practices relating to supplementary registration, described in a final rule published in the Federal Register today. To help ease the transition to online filing, the Office will provide guidance in updates to the Compendium of U.S. Copyright Office Practices, as well as an online tutorial.
