eCO Question

->> I hoping for a laymen's explanation here from authors who have registered.

In opening a new case, do you create 1 title and types of work and continually add items, or do you have to register a new title for every session you shoot?

e.g. Title of Work - "Photographs", Submit Work - "every photo I take"

or: Title of Work - "Jim and Sue Smith", Submit Work - "June 2011 Wedding" / Title of Work - "Reno Rodeo", Submit Work - "3 Day Event, June, 2011" / etc.

I want to get it right and hopefully others who have registered can comment.

->> As recommended from John Harrington's book Best Business Practices for Photographers, I use a generic title for all group registrations. For example, "Jason O'Conner Watson Miscellaneous Unpublished Photographs 2010-2011 (ref#U1101) 5,000 files on 1 CD containing 5,000 photographs."

That seems to work fine. I've had problems doing group registrations of published photographs via eCO as the copyright office still wishes to receive Form VA for those. Unpublished they're fine with.

->> I got a letter from the registrar a few weeks back asking thet every file have a description attached. some verbaige attached about a judge and a lawsuit. I can't imagine the amount of time it would take to do that every wee, month, quarter, or how ever long between submissions you use.

Anyone else get the letter?

Sorry, don't mean to hijack the thread.
