You hereby authorize National Creative Registry to destroy/delete registered
files without notice to you on the expiration of ten years from the registration
date hereof. You can however renew the registration for an additional term of
ten years at any time before the expiration of the first ten year period if
you pay the then applicable renewal fee. THIS DOES NOT APPLY TO PERMANENT REGISTRATIONS
WHICH NEVER EXPIRE.
ProtectRite registration is a service. Its purpose is to help in establishing
the completion date and the claim to authorship/creation of a property.
ProtectRite registration is not a formal copyright and does not provide
statutory protections. National Creative Registry’s ProtectRite service assumes
that you have kept, and you acknowledge that you have kept, a copy of this
registration. Although ProtectRite will exercise reasonable care to protect the
registration file and the record of registration, it accepts no responsibility
for loss, corruption, or destruction of the submitted file or the registration
records. In the unlikely event that the manuscript file is destroyed, damaged,
corrupted, or lost, due to National Creative Registry's failure to exercise
reasonable care or by reason of any other cause whatsoever, it is agreed and
understood that the liquidated damages for the loss of the manuscript is and
shall be $1.00. National Creative Registry encrypts and stores registration
files on three separate systems to insure redundancy. We have never lost a
registration! National Creative Registry stores files in the format submitted.
IT IS THE REGISTRANT'S RESPONSIBILITY TO MAINTAIN ANY NEEDED SOFTWARE OR LICENSES
TO ACCESS ANY GIVEN FILE'S CONTENTS IN THE FUTURE.
Requests for copies or withdrawal of registered material can only be made by the
original registrant in the form of a notarized letter or e-mail from the account
listed upon the registration. It is understood that registrant will submit
registrations using his/her legal name. If registration is in the names of more
than one individual, notarized letters must be submitted by each registrant to
withdraw registration. If a registrant is deceased, proof of death and written
consent of his/her representatives or heirs must be submitted.
