The final rule adopts a new requirement that applicants seeking copyright registrations for groups of photographs—both published and unpublished—must generally submit applications through the Office’s electronic registration system, and can include up to 750 photographs in each claim.
In less than a month, the limit is going to be 750 images, TOTAL, on a single registration. This means that a group registration of 5,500 images that I could previously register for $55 using the online eCO, will now cost me $520, or almost a ten-fold increase.
I don't live in the US, so even though some photographers have encouraged non-USer's to register it didn't really make financial sense to do so. And now it makes even less sense. So obviously this doesn't affect me at all: but I'm curious as to how it affects those of you in the US, and if it will change your workflow, what you charge your clients, etc.
