2007.2 (A) (2) Author of a Restored Work


When identifying the author of a restored work on Form GATT applicants should be aware of the following issues:


• Timing matters: The applicant must determine whether, at the time the work was created, the author was a national or domiciliary of a country that is now eligible for protection in the United States. See 17 U.S.C. § 104A (H) (6) (D).


• Anonymous works: To register an anonymous work, the applicant may provide the author’s legal name or the author’s pseudonym, as long as the pseudonym consists of a name (rather than a number or symbol). See Chapter 600, Section 615.1 (B).
