808.10(J) Restored Copyrights in Foreign Motion Pictures


If a motion picture published in a foreign country fell into the public domain in the United States for any reason (such as publication without a copyright notice) the copyright in that work may have been restored as of January 1, 1996 under the GATT-URAA amendment to the copyright law. For works of Canada and Mexico published between January 1, 1978 and before March 1, 1989, restoration may have occurred as of January 1, 1995 under the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA). These topics are discussed in Sections 808.10(K) (1) and 808.10(K) (2).
