Copyrights—United States

Copyright numbers were started anew each year before 1898. Classification letters precede the number from then on. In 1978 the classification system was simplified.  There are several types of dates associated with a copyright record, depending on year of submission.  Date types include:  submission date, publication date, registration date, date of receipt of copies, date of assignation, date of renewal, and so forth.
