1114.6 (H) Nation of Publication

1114.6 (H) Nation of Publication


When registering a group of published photographs, the applicant should identify the country where the photos were published for the first time. The registration specialist may use this information to determine if the photos are eligible for copyright protection in the United States.


To identify the nation of publication, the applicant should select the appropriate country from the drop down menu on the Title screen. If the nation of publication is unknown, the applicant may select “not known.” If the photographs were published in different countries, the applicant may provide that information in the application in the Note to Copyright Office field.


NOTE: The “Nation of First Publication” field only appears in the application for published photographs. It does not appear in the application for unpublished photographs.
