Update on Mandatory Deposits
We contacted the copyright office about penalties for self-publishing authors who do not submit mandatory deposits. Their reply was that there is no penalty for not fulfilling the mandatory deposit requirement unless the Office has repeatedly requested the copies and has been repeatedly refused.
The question was asked: Are self-published authors required to submit mandatory deposits?
The answer from the copyright office: Yes. Any published work is subject to the mandatory deposit requirement.
