"At this point in the process of
developing the Copyright Office's system for online preregistration, it 
is not entirely clear whether the system will be compatible with web 
browsers other than Microsoft Internet Explorer versions 5.1 and higher. 
Filers of preregistration applications will be able to employ these 
Internet Explorer browsers successfully. Support for Netscape 7.2, 
Firefox 1.0.3, and Mozilla 1.7.7 is planned but will not be available 
when preregistration goes into effect. Present users of these browsers 
may experience problems when filing claims.

"In order to ensure that preregistration can be implemented in a 
smoothly functioning and timely manner, the Office now seeks comments 
that will assist it in determining whether any eligible parties will be 
prevented from preregistering a claim due to browser requirements of the 
preregistration system. Therefore, this notice seeks information whether 
any potential preregistration filers would have difficulties using 
Internet Explorer (version 5.1 or higher) to file preregistration 
claims, and if so, why. More generally, in the interest of achieving 
support for browsers in the Office's preregistration processing 
environment, this notice inquires whether (and why) an eligible party 
who anticipates preregistering a claim on the electronic-only form will 
not be able to use Internet Explorer to do so, or will choose not to 
preregister if it is necessary to use Internet Explorer."
