February 16, 2007

Effective February 8, 2007, and according to the Federal Register from the same date, the Copyright Office made a technical amendment “in the regulations regarding fees for recordation of an interim or amended designation of agent to receive notification of claimed infringement under the Copyright Act.” Back in June of 2006, a final rule pertaining to the adjustment of copyright fees was made, including a fee adjustment designation of $80.00 for the recordation of an interim designation of agent that would receive notifications of claimed infringement under § 512(c) of the Copyright Act in the new 37 CFR § 201.3(c) fee schedule. Although that amendment intended to capture all fees within the same fee schedule, it did not address the recordation of an interim or amended designation to receive notification as described above. To correct for this oversight, technical amendments have been made to 37 CFR §§ 201.38(e) and 201.38(f). Specifically, the references to the $30.00 filing fee within those sections have been removed and replaced with references to a filing fee “for Recordation of an Interim Designation of Agent to Receive Notification of Claimed Infringement under section 512(c)(2) in the amount prescribed in § 201.3(c). The revised statutory language appears in the CFR as provided on the Copyright Office website.
