2005.1 Multiple Authors of a Foreign Work

This Section discusses frequent registration issues that arise in connection with foreign works.


2005.1 Multiple Authors of a Foreign Work


If the foreign work was created by multiple authors and if eligibility is based on the domicile or nationality of those authors, the work will be eligible for registration as long as any one of the authors’ nationalities or domiciles is sufficient. For example, if the work was created by three authors, two of whom are from Iran (a country that has no copyright treaties with the United States) and one of whom is from France (a country that does have copyright relations with the United States), the work would be eligible for registration.
