Completing copyright application

← Return to forum

  • Hello,

    The application is easy to complete, except for the following:   "Complete this screen to limit your claim if this work contains or is based on previously registered material, previously published material, material in the public domain or material not owned by the claimant. . . ."  The issue is so broad that I don't know how to respond.  May I skip it and leave it to my publisher, which I don't yet have? 

    Thank you.

  • I would reach out to the US Copyright Office to find out if that portion of the form is required.
