Background: These two magazines were published within a single calendar year, and therefore qualify for a group registration.

 

Preparation of Deposit: We believe that the easiest and most cost effective way to register this kind of work is to shoot copy shots of the published photographs on color print film.

Forms: I used Short Form VA to register this work, along with the Group Registration of Photographs form. A copy of the short form can be seen here, and the Group Form here.

Protection: These images receive the full protection of copyright registration for any infringements that occurred AFTER the date of registration. For any infringements that happened before the date of registration, only actual damages are recoverable. This means that no punitive damages can be recovered, nor can attorney's fees.
