compilation copyright registrations
There is a new case that might be of use to those interested in copyright registrations. Each time a copyright registration is filed, a fee must be paid to the copyright office. To save money, some people register a collection of individual creative works as a compilation. That way, they only have to pay one registration fee for the compilation instead of a fee for each creative work in that compilation. The case involved a compilation of law forms. The copier won because [among other reasons] only part of the compilation was copied - and not all of it. If you do programming and create business forms, it is a case worth looking at. Send me your e-mail if you would like a copy of the case.
