Hm... I do have another question. In the collection I'd like to register there are also 2 co-written poems. I found these instructions on sheet/form FL106:
"Published collections of poetry and all other copyrightable elements of a unit of pub-lication
may be registered on a single form with a single fee if all of the poems are owned
by the same copyright claimant.
Unpublished collections of two or more poems may be submitted for registration on
a single form with a single fee and deposit of one complete copy or phonorecord only if
all of the following conditions are met:
1. The elements are assembled in an orderly form;
2. The combined elements bear a single title identifying the collection as a whole;
3. The copyright claimant in all of the elements and in the collection as a whole is
the same; and
4. All of the elements are by the same author, or, if they are by different authors, at
least one of the authors has contributed copyrightable authorship to each of the
Registration of an unpublished collection of compositions extends the benefits of reg-istration to each copyrightable selection in the collection, but only the collection title ap-pears in the Copyright Office catalogs and indexes."
Does this mean I may include them in the collection (with permission of the other authors of course) as long as "part" of the poem is written by me?
LOL I'm getting all confused! Thanks for your time and patience though.
