United States Copyright Office
Register of Copyrights Maria A. Pallante has released the official version of the Compendium of U.S. Copyright Office Practices, Third Edition (the “Third Edition”). The Third Edition is effective as of December 22, 2014, and is the governing administrative manual for registrations and recordations issued by the Office on or after that date.
The Compendium serves as a technical manual for the Office’s staff, as well as a guidebook for authors, copyright licensees, practitioners, scholars, the courts, and members of the general public. More than three times the size of the previous edition, the Third Edition represents a comprehensive overhaul and makes the Office’s practices and standards more accessible and transparent to the public.
