DEFINITIONS Newspaper: As defined by the Newspaper Section of the Serials and Government Publications Division of the Library of Congress, works classified as newspapers are serials mainly designed to be a primary source of written information on current events, either local, national, or international in scope. Newspapers contain a broad range of news on all subjects and activities and are not limited to any specific subject matter. Newspapers are intended either for the general public or for a particular group. Newsletter: For registration purposes, a daily newsletter is defined as a serial published and distributed by mail or electronic media (online, telefacsimile, cassette tape, diskette, or CD-ROM). Publication must occur at least two days per week, and the newsletter must contain news or information of interest chiefly to a special group (for example, trade and professional associations, corporations, schools, colleges, and churches). Daily newsletters are customarily available by subscription and are not sold on newsstands. Collective Work: A “collective work” is a work, such as a periodical issue, in which a number of contributions, constituting separate and independent works in themselves, are assembled into a collective whole. Work Made for Hire: A “work made for hire” is defined as: (1) a work prepared by an employee within the scope of his or her employment; or (2) a work specially ordered or commissioned for certain uses (including use as a contribution to a collective work), if the parties expressly agree in a written instrument signed by them that the work shall be considered a work made for hire. The employer is the author of a work made for hire. For more information, read Circular 9, Works Made for Hire Under the 1976 Copyright Act.
