At the 30:40 mark: My knowledge & treatments to sign-up “groups of works” is unique from the attorney’s.
To be apparent, creatives can register from 2 to 10 UN-revealed works from the exact same classification, like visual arts (for instance, three un-published paintings, two un-released drawings, 5 un-published sculptures) making use of the “Group Registration of Un-released Works” (GRUW) on-line copyright registration application” for a single filing payment of $85 overall (it’s not $85 for each do the job). See the GRUW info & tutorial at https://www.copyright.gov/gruw/ and https://youtu.be/eR14iSM4esQ
The lawyer described the team application (GRUW) as a “coming out as a selection …is named a ‘Day of publication’ (copyright lingo) – all posted on the exact day.” I’ve never ever listened to of that! Again, the GRUW application is for UN-printed works ONLY. After you’ve formally registered via the GRUW application, you can officially publish individuals performs separately or together at any time. Also, the US Copyright Place of work does not recognize the GRUW software as a “collection” of works, but relatively as a Group of un-printed personal works that have their possess copyright registration claim.
It is vital NOT to blended posted and UN-posted functions in the GRUW application. If your will work are revealed, use the “Single Application” or “Standard Application” (see beneath).
Do not sign-up your 10 un-released operates applying the GRUW software on say, a Monday, and on that very Monday “publish” them. If you can, wait at least two comprehensive times before creating your function obtainable to the general public (posted standing).

See https://www.copyright.gov/circs/circ11.pdf and https://youtu.be/MkBiPQNDVBc
Usually, to register a one un-/released get the job done with numerous authors, and/or as a derivative/collective operate, and/or that contains Resourceful Commons, Community Area, and/or certified media, etcetera., the cost is $65. Use the “Standard Application” (on-line eCO application): https://youtu.be/6gNkssUfYas
If you’re unsure about which application to use to register your A single work, find the Regular Application.
“Publication” Definition: Publication generally signifies the get the job done has been produced and designed offered to the community for licensing, advertising, sharing, downloading, or for further distribution (both for no cost or for payment). The day you deliver your inventive get the job done to your consumer or to inventory or to a offering platform (Etsy) is probable the official date of its very first-publication.
