4 Form GATT ⁄ GRP Detach and read these instructions before completing this form. Make sure all applicable spaces have been ﬁlled in before you return this form. BASIC INFORMATION When to Use This Form Use Form GATT/GRP on or after January 1, 1996, to register copyright claims in a group of related works in which U.S. copyright was restored under the 1994 Uruguay Round Agreements Act (URAA). 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. Definitions 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 For an unpublished work, the source country is the eligible country of which the author is a national or domiciliary.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. Requirements for Group Registration Group of Related Works: A group registration is available for registering up to 10 individual works restored under the URAA if all the following conditions are met: 1 The author of all U.S. restored rights must be the same for all works in the group. The owner must also be the same for all the works. But the author and the owner of all U.S. restored rights need not be the same party. 2 All works must have been published (or created if unpublished) within the same calendar year. Do not combine published and unpublished works on the same form. 3 There must be at least two and not more than ten individual works in the group. 4 All works must fit within the same classification. For example, all works are literary works or all works are works of the visual arts.
