COPYRIGHT OFFICE ADOPTS INTERIM REGULATIONS DEALING WITH
DISRUPTION OF POSTAL SERVICE (66 FR 62942)

The Copyright Office is adopting interim regulations at 37
CRF 201.8 that address the effect of a disruption or
suspension of postal services to the Copyright Office, a
service unit of the Library of Congress. 
  Because of concerns about anthrax in U.S. Postal
Services facilities in the District of Columbia, where the
Library of Congress is located, mail service to the
Copyright Office has been disrupted since Oct. 18. The
interim regulations permit persons who have sent material to
the Office and believe that the Office's receipt of those
materials has been delayed to submit evidence that the
materials would have been received in the Office by a
particular date but for the disruption or suspension of
postal services. Based on the evidence, the Office may
assign as the date of receipt the date on which the material
would have been received but for the disruption.
  The regulations spell out at what point such a request
for an earlier effective date of receipt may be made and why
the date of receipt is important. In the case of
regitration materials, the request may not be made prior to
a claimant's receipt of a certificate of registration,
except when the Office has first contacted the concerned
party or when the Register finds there is good cause for an
earlier consideration, and no later than one year after the
date on which the claimant receives the certificate.
Requests for an earlier effective date for transfers of
copyrights or other materials submitted for recordation are
encouraged to be made as soon as possible.
  The regulations also spell out what evidence should be
submitted as evidence that the materials would have been
received earlier.
  The regulations are based on the authority granted the
Register under section 709 of the Copyright Act. The
Register will publish tomorrow in the Federal Register a
declaration that "commencing on October 18, 2001, there has
been a general disruption of postal services that has
affected the delivery of deposits, applications, fees, and
other materials submitted to the Office. Persons who believe
that they have been adversely affected by the disruption of
postal services should comply with the provisions of 37 CRF
201.8. When the disruption of postal services has ended, the
Register shall publish a determination to that effect."
  Comments on the interim regulations are due January 3,
2002.
