Will innocent, immaterial inaccuracies defeat copyright registration?
Abstract: Mistakes happen — but, thanks to a new ruling by the Eleventh Circuit Court of Appeals, mistakes in a copyright registration application don’t necessarily doom the resulting registration. This article summarizes a case finding that the registration will be upheld unless it contains material inaccuracies and the registrant intended to conceal relevant information from the Copyright Office. Roberts, II v. Gordy, No. 16-12284, Dec. 15, 2017, 11th Cir.
