U.S. Copyright Office, Registration of Claims to Copyright [in Compilations], 77 Fed. Reg. 37605 (June 22, 2012) (full-text).

Overview Edit

This Copyright Office statement of policy is intended to clarify its examination practices with respect to claims in "compilation authorship," or the selection, coordination, or arrangement of material that is otherwise separately uncopyrightable.

Unless a compilation of materials results in a work of authorship that falls within one or more of the eight categories of authorship listed in section 102(a) of title 17, the Copyright Office will refuse registration to such a claim.
