2116.3 (B) Simultaneous Publication in the United States


For renewal registration purposes, a work was simultaneously published in the United States when it was published in this country on the same day as it was published abroad. Such works are considered to be first published in the United States.


Exception: For information regarding the effect of simultaneous publication in the United States on renewal registration of books and periodicals that would be otherwise eligible as U.C.C. works, or through ad interim copyright and compliance with manufacturing requirements, see Section 2118.3. For works of foreign origin that are published in the United States within thirty days of first publication abroad, see Part VII regarding restoration of copyright under the URAA.
