Sec. 202.4  Effective date of registration.

The effective date of registration for claims received in the 
Copyright Office on or after January 3, 1991, and through 
December 31, 1991, with a short fee of $10 is the date on 
which the application, deposit, and $10 fee have all been received 
in the Copyright Office, provided, the claim is later determined 
to be acceptable for registration by the Register of Copyrights and 
a supplementary fee of $10 is received in the Copyright Office. 
If the supplementary fee is not received promptly after 
notification of the short fee, the Copyright Office will 
initiate a proceeding to cancel the copyright registration. 
If the supplementary fee of $10 is not received in the Copyright 
Office before the cancellation proceeding is completed, the 
cancellation will become final and will result in the loss of 
the effective date of registration. After cancellation, registration 
could be obtained only by submitting a new application, deposit, 
and filing fee.
