Copyright Office Proposal to Mandate Electronically-Filed Group Registrations

The Copyright Office, in keeping with its plan to increase online registrations, is proposing to amend the current regulations governing group registrations, which allow the grouping of individual works on one application. Under the proposal, applicants who take advantage of the group registration option would be required to file their claims electronically. Comments are due on or before May 30, 2008.
