SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

In 1997, the Copyright Office adopted an interim regulation which permitted correction of errors in the filing of Notices of Intent to Enforce (NIEs) restored copyrights under certain conditions, pursuant to the Uruguay Round Agreements Act. 62 FR 55736 (1997). In accordance with that regulation, a Correction Notice has been filed to correct certain information appearing on the NIE for the first work listed below, originally recorded effective August 22, 1997. The new information has been cataloged in Copyright Office records.

In a separate case, the Office has administratively amended the record for a Group NIE to reflect 45 additional titles not originally included. The effective date will be that of the original Group NIE, April 17, 1998. The Office is making this amendment to reflect a policy determination regarding the regulation permitting a single Group NIE to cover multiple works at a discounted rate where “all of the works are by the same author.” 37 CFR 201.33 (1999). Previously the Copyright Office neither indexed nor listed titles from a Group NIE that did not have complete identity of authorship with other titles. For example, if a Group NIE listed titles 1and 2 by Author A and title 3 by Coauthors A and B, the Office required an additional NIE to be filed before publishing or indexing the nonconforming title.

In response to an inquiry and reexamination of the matter, the Office has since determined that the regulation might reasonably have been interpreted to permit group filing where the works had at least one common author. The Office has, therefore, decided that when it becomes aware that it has refused to list titles from Group NIEs because the listed works did not contain total unity of authorship but had one or more common authors, the Copyright Office will amend the original NIE record to reflect the previously omitted titles and publish those titles in the Federal Register on the next scheduled four-month publication date. If any corrections are received, the next projected publication date is December 1, 2000.
