Restoration of Copyright
Works from any source country eligible under the URAA may be subject to automatic copyright restoration. However, to be so restored, a work must meet the following requirements: 1 The work is not in the public domain in its source country through expiration of the term of protection. 2 The work is in the public domain in the United States due to: a noncompliance with U.S. copyright formalities; b lack of subject matter protection in the case of sound recordings fixed before February 15, 1972; or c lack of national eligibility. 3 The work has at least one author (or rightholder in the case of sound recordings) who was, at the time the work was created, a national or domiciliary of an eligible country. 4 If published, the work was first published in an eligible country and was not published in the United States during the 30-day period following publication in the eligible country. Note about architectural works: Restoration of U.S. copyright for architectural works is available only to architectural works published or constructed on or after December 1, 1990.
Eligible country: A nation other than the United States that is a member of the Berne Convention, or a member of the World Trade Organization, or is subject to a presidential proclamation restoring the U.S. copyright to works of that nation on the basis of reciprocal treatment. Source country of a restored work: A nation other than the United States. For an unpublished work, the source country is the eligible country of which the author is a national or domiciliary. If a restored work has more than one author, the source country is the country of which the majority of foreign authors are nationals or domiciliaries. If the majority of authors are not foreign, the source country is the nation other than the United States that has the most significant contacts with the work. For a published work, the source country is the eligible country in which the work was first published. If the restored work was published simultaneously in two or more eligible countries, the source country is the eligible country that has the most significant contacts with the work. Owner of U.S. copyright: A claim in a restored work may be registered only in the name of the owner(s) of the U.S. copyright, that is, in the name of the owner(s) of all U.S. rights in that work. A licensee or other owner of only certain exclusive rights in a work is not permitted to register a claim in a restored work in his name.
