On March 15, 2019, the U.S. Copyright Office issued a notice announcing the release of a public draft of an update to its administrative manual, the Compendium of U.S. Copyright Office Practices, Third Edition.[1] The Office updated the manual to reflect the Supreme Court's decision in Star Athletica v. Varsity Brands, 137 S. Ct. 1002 (2017), rulemakings issued over the past two years, and technical upgrades that have been made to the electronic registration system. The update was released in draft form to give the public an opportunity to review and provide comments on the revisions. To ensure that members of the public have sufficient time to respond, and to ensure that the Office has the benefit of a complete record, the Office is extending the submission deadline until the end of the month.
