In all cases, the applicant should identify the author’s country of citizenship and/or domicile. The registration specialist may use this information to determine if the works are eligible for copyright protection in the United States.


To do so, the applicant should select the name of the relevant country from the drop down menus on the Author/Claimant screen. If the author’s nationality or domicile are unknown, the applicant may select “not known.”


For a definition and discussion of nationality and domicile, see Chapter 600, Section 617.
