Copyright Office Issues Final Rule Relating to Group Registration of Newsletters
Issue No. 826 - May 28, 2020

The U.S. Copyright Office has published a final rule that amends its regulations for the group registration of newsletters, effective June 29, 2020. The previous regulations required that newsletters be published at least twice a week to qualify for this option. To accommodate less-frequently published newsletters, the new rule permits publishers to register a month of newsletters with one application and filing fee, even if the newsletter is published as infrequently as twice a month. The rule also updates the address where complimentary subscription copies should be sent for purposes of satisfying the mandatory deposit requirement.
