2122.5 (C) Eligibility of Foreign Sound Recordings

2122.5 (C) Eligibility of Foreign Sound Recordings


Renewal registration of foreign sound recordings is dependent on the nationality and domicile of the author at the time of first publication. Renewal registration may be possible when the author was a national or domiciliary of (or, if an organization, was registered in) a country with which the United States had bilateral relations, or when the producer was a national of (or if an organization, was registered in) a country that was a party to the Geneva Phonogram Convention at the time of first publication (on or after March 10, 1974). See U.S. COPYRIGHT OFFICE, UNITED STATES COPYRIGHT RELATIONS OF

CURRENT INTEREST (1960); International Copyright Conventions (Circular 38) (1977).


NOTE: When eligibility for registration of a foreign sound recording is based solely on the provisions of the U.C.C., renewal registration is not possible, but registration under the URAA may be possible. See Part VII.
