1802.6 (H) Citizenship, Domicile, and Nation of First Publication
If there is an error in the basic registration concerning the author’s citizenship/domicile or the nation of first publication, the correct information may be added to the registration record with a supplementary registration. This determination should be based on the facts that existed at the time when the basic registration was made.
If the work does not appear to be eligible for copyright protection in the United States based on the information provided in the application for supplementary registration, the registration specialist will communicate with the applicant. If the specialist determines that the work was not eligible for copyright protection at the time the basic registration was made, the application for supplementary registration may be refused and the basic registration may be cancelled. See Section 1802.9 (I).
