1509.1(M) GATT Literary Works

The General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade (“GATT”) is an international trade agreement. To register a published literary work that was restored to copyright protection in the United States under GATT, the applicant may submit deposit copy(ies) in the following formats listed in descending order of preference:

1. The work as first published.

2. A reprint or rerelease of the work as first published.

3. A photocopy or identical reproduction of the work as first published.

4. A revised version which includes a substantial amount of the copyrightable content of the restored work with an indication in writing of the percentage of the restored work appearing in the revision.

See 37 C.F.R. § 202.12 (C) (3) (I). For general information concerning GATT registrations, see Chapter 2000, Section 2007.
