# Registered symbol in biblatex bibliography

I am having trouble putting a raised registered symbol (\textsuperscript{\textregistered}) in my biblatex bibliography.

MWE:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}
\usepackage[backend=biber, bibencoding=utf8, style=authoryear-icomp]{biblatex}
\bibliography{ref}

\begin{document}

Text\parencite{name}.

\printbibliography

\end{document}


And the reference:

@manual{name,
title = {Title\textsuperscript{\textregistered}},
author = {Some Guy},
year = {2014},
}


This produces the following errors:

./test.tex:11: Argument of \UTFviii@two@octets has an extra }.

./test.tex:11: Paragraph ended before \UTFviii@two@octets was complete.

./test.tex:11: Package inputenc Error: Keyboard character used is undefined

and the bibliography entry shows up without the symbol.

Using either the \textsuperscript or \textregistered alone does not produce this problem. Any suggestions?

• Welcome to TeX.SX! I get no error; can you tell what TeX distribution you're using? – egreg Nov 24 '14 at 16:15
• Thanks. I am using TeX Live 2013 on OSX Yosemite, all up to date. – lydhvin Nov 24 '14 at 20:58
• TeX Live is 2014 now. – egreg Nov 24 '14 at 20:59
• Is it 2014 already?;) I'll upgrade and give it a shot. But I'm pretty sure I had the same problem last year, but I just gave up. – lydhvin Nov 24 '14 at 21:18
• It has been 2014 for several months (from beginning of July). – egreg Nov 24 '14 at 21:21

The error is caused by an outdated version of biblatex and biber.
