If the copies or phono-records of the work bear a title (or an identifying phrase that could serve as a title), copy that wording completely and exactly on the application. Give the volume and number of the periodical issue for which you are seeking registra-tion. The 223Date on Copies224 in space 1 should be the date appearing on the actual copies (for example: 223June 1981,224 223Winter 1981224). Indexing of the regis-tration and future identi037cation of the work will depend on the information you give here.Previous or Alternative Titles: Complete this space only if there are any ad-ditional titles for the serial under which someone searching for the registration might be likely to look or under which a document pertaining to the work might be recorded. 2 SPACE 2: Author(s)General Instructions: After reading these instructions, decide who are the 223authors224 of this work for copyright purposes. In the case of a serial issue, the organization that directs the creation of the serial issue as a whole is generally considered the author of the 223collective work224 (see 223Nature of Au-thorship224) whether it employs a staff or uses the efforts of volunteers. Where, however, an individual is independently responsible for the serial issue, name that person as author of the 223collective work.224Name of Author: The fullest form of the author222s name should be given. In the case of a 223work made for hire,224 the statute provides that 223the employer or other person for whom the work was prepared is considered the author.224 If this issue is a 223work made for hire,224 the author222s name will be the full legal name of the hiring organization, corporation, or individual. The title of the periodi-cal should not ordinarily be listed as 223author224 because the title itself does not usually correspond to a legal entity capable of authorship. When an individual creates an issue of a serial independently and not as an 223employee224 of an orga-nization or corporation, that individual should be listed as the 223author.224Author222s Nationality or Domicile: Give the country of which the author is a citizen, or the country in which the author is domiciled. Nationality or domicile must be given in all cases. The citizenship of an organization formed under U.S. federal or state law should be stated as 223U.S.A.224What Is a 223Work Made for Hire224? A 223work made for hire224 is de037ned as (1) 223a work prepared by an employee within the scope of his or her employment224; or (2) 223a work specially ordered or commissioned for use as a contribution to a collective work, as a part of a motion picture or other audiovisual work, as a translation, as a supplementary work, as a compilation, as an instructional text, as a test, as answer material for a test, or as an atlas, if the parties expressly agree in a written instrument signed by them that the work shall be considered a work made for hire.224 An organization that uses the efforts of volunteers in the creation of a 223collective work224 (see 223Nature of Authorship224) may also be considered the author of a 223work made for hire224 even though those volunteers were not speci037cally paid by the organization. In the case of a 223work made for hire,224 give the full legal name of the employer and check 223Yes224 to indicate that the work was made for hire. You may also include the name of the employee along with the name of the employer (for example: 223Elster Publishing Co., employer for hire of John Ferguson224).223Anonymous224 or 223Pseudonymous224 Work: Leave this space blank if the serial is a 223work made for hire.224 An author222s contribution to a work is 223anonymous224 if that author is not identi037ed on the copies or phonorecords of the work. An author222s contribution to a work is 223pseudonymous224 if that author is identi037ed on the copies or phonorecords under a 037ctitious name. If the work is 223anony-mous,224 you may: (1) leave the line blank; or (2) state 223anonymous224 on the line; or (3) reveal the author222s identify. If the work is 223pseudonymous,224 you may: (1) leave the line blank; or (2) give the pseudonym and identify it as such (for example: 223Huntley Haverstock, pseudonym224); or (3) reveal the author222s name, making clear which is the real name and which is the pseudonym (for example: 223Judith Barton, whose pseudonym is Madeline Elster224). However, the citizen-ship or domicile of the author must be given in all cases. American LegalNet, Inc. Dates of Birth and Death: Leave this space blank if the author222s contribution was a 223work made for hire.224 If the
