Does Form CA create a separate registration?

Naperville, IL |

Does it create a separate registraion with corrections next to orginial registration with wrong information. Is it only for published works?

This is werid. Why have a corrected registration and next to your other registration? There is not another option. I asked this question before but immediately avvo took it down because an attorney has posted negatively.

    And by the way, Avvo didn't remove your post because of any negativity from me or any other lawyer.

    Avvo doesn't pay us for these responses, and I'm not your lawyer just because I answer this question or respond to any follow-up comments. If you want to hire me, please contact me. Otherwise, please don't expect a further response. We need an actual written agreement to form an attorney-client relationship. I'm only licensed in CA and you shouldn't rely on this answer, since each state has different laws, each situation is fact specific, and it's impossible to evaluate a legal problem without a comprehensive consultation and review of all the facts and documents at issue.


  2. Your prior posting was not deleted because an attorney posted something negative. Your prior posting was deleted because you attacked the professionalism of an Avvo attorney who answered your question by referring you to links containing the answers.

    The above is general legal and business analysis. It is not "legal advise" but analysis, and different lawyers may analyse this matter differently, especially if there are additional facts not reflected in the question. I am not your attorney until retained by a written retainer agreement signed by both of us. I am only licensed in California. See also avvo.com terms and conditions item 9, incorporated as if it was reprinted here.


  3. Avvo took your prior post down because YOU made false defamatory statements, not because of any negative comments.

    CA creates a supplemental registration. Someone searching the database should find both the original erroneous registration and the supplemental registration. The instructions for form CA make this absolutely clear.

    No, it is not only for published works.

    I am not your lawyer and you are not my client. Free advice here is without recourse and any reliance thereupon is at your sole risk. This is done without compensation as a free public service. I am licensed in IL, MO, TX and I am a Reg. Pat. Atty. so advice in any other jurisdiction is strictly general advice and should be confirmed with an attorney licensed in that jurisdiction.
