Copyright Registration of Unpublished Collections or Groups of Works
Just a quick note about registering a single copyright for unpublished groups or collections. While it is very efficient and less costly than registering separate copyrights for each work in the group, the drawback is that you may only be able to collect damages on the single group, not the multiple works within the group. This is especially true with regard to statutory damages. Something to keep in mind when comtemplating a group registration.
