2118.2 Foreign Language Books

Generally, foreign language books are subject to the manufacturing clause only if first published in the United States.

Exception: If the author is a U.S. national or domiciliary when a foreign language book was first published, the book had to be manufactured in the United States. If the book was manufactured abroad, copyright in the United States was lost upon publication; ad interim copyright could not be secured, and renewal registration is not possible.
