2118.1 English Language Books
Generally, all English language books are subject to the manufacturing clause except those that qualify under the U.C.C. exemption (“U.C.C. works”).
Exceptions: For information concerning works under ad interim copyright when a country joined the U.C.C. and works that secured, or were capable of securing, ad interim copyright as of December 31, 1977, see Section 2115.2 (F). Also, when an author of a book was stateless on the date of first publication, renewal registration is possible regardless of the former or prospective citizenship or domicile of the author, or the place of manufacture or first publication.
