LIST OF COPYRIGHT RENEWALS
LIST OF NOTICES OF USER
NEW SERIES, VOLUME 6
GOVERNMENT PRINTING OFFICE
The act of March 4, 1909, going into effect July 1, 1909, provides that the Catalogue of Copyright Entries "shall be admitted in any court as prima facie evidence of the facts stated therein as regards any copyright registration."
'HE Catalogue of Copyright Entries is published in four parts. Part 3, containing the entries for musical compositions and dramatico-musical compositions, is issued monthly. The entries are arranged alphabetically by titles, with the exception of classical music, collections having general titles, such as "Fünf studien," "12 études élémentaires," etc., and music the title of which is the name of a class without differentiating words (e. g., "Waltz," "Étude," etc.), which are arranged under the name of the composer instead of the title.
Piano music is understood to be for two hands unless otherwise stated. Songs are understood to be with piano accompaniment unless otherwise stated. Titles reading "Words by," "Music by," are to be understood as songs.
Under the act of March 4, 1909, the preliminary entry of titles has been abrogated and registration follows deposit of copies with an application for entry in the Copyright Office.
To save space in the Catalogue the copyright notice after each title is abbreviated. The abbreviations used in this part are as follows: "E," Class E, Musical compositions; "D," Class D, Dramatico-musical compositions; "" implies copyright registration of a published composition, followed by date of publication; " 1 c." stands for copyright of an unpublished work, followed by date of receipt in the Copyright Office of the printed or manuscript copy, and "2 c." for 2 copies, followed by the date of their receipt. In case of contributions to periodicals only one copy of the issue or issues containing such contribution is required.
A list of the copyright renewals and extensions made for musical compositions under section 24 of the act of March 4, 1909, will be found at the end of this issue, immediately following the text.
A list of the musical compositions and dramatico-musical compositions used or licensed to be used for the manufacture of parts of instruments serving to reproduce mechanically the musical work, recorded under section 1 (e) of the act of March 4, 1909, will be found just prior to the index.
Each issue has an index to composers. The December number, completing the volume, will have a full annual index to both composers and proprietors. The subscription price for Part 3, which must be for the complete calendar year, is $1.00 for the year 1911, payable in advance to the Superintendent of Documents by postal money order, express order, or New York draft.
