U.S. Copyright Office Releases New Resource for Registering Non-Photographic Databases

Issue No. 974 - July 22, 2022

The Copyright Office launched a new web page that provides general guidance for registering automated databases that do not primarily consist of photographs. The page includes helpful information about registering individual versions of a database as well group registration of up to three months of database updates. It also answers frequently asked questions and provides referential information for database applicants.

More information about the registration options for non-photographic databases is available on the Copyright Office’s website.
