    This proposed change was posted to DCRM-L for discussion on 7 Feburary 2011 under the subject line "DPC: Make a note indicating information is fictitious or incorrect even if correction cannot be supplied (4A4, etc.)." See the DCRM-L Archives for the thread.

    Proposed change:

    4A4. Fictitious or incorrect information  

    If all information relating to the publication, distribution, etc., area appearing in the publication is known to be fictitious or incorrect, transcribe it nonetheless and make an explanatory note. If the real details are known, or can be reasonably surmised, supply them at the end of the area as a correction in square brackets. Give Include the source of this information in a the note. If some but not all of the information is known to be fictitious or incorrect, apply the appropriate rule (see 4B9, 4C5, 4D2.4).

    A similar change would have to be made for 4B9, 4C5, and 4D2.3/4D2.4 (S/B).
