Important Note: The option for registering a “collection” of unpublished works was eliminated on March 15th. Applicants may no longer use the Standard Application to register multiple unpublished works on or after that date.
Beginning March 15th, you may register up to 10 unpublished works using the new application for a “Group of Unpublished Works”. A different limit will apply when registering a group of photographs. Read more.
