Mandatory deposit law (17 US section 407)[edit]

All works under copyright protection that are published in the United States are subject to the mandatory deposit provision of the copyright law (17 USC section 407).

This law requires that two copies of the best edition of every copyrightable work published in the United States be sent to the Copyright Office within three months of publication. Works deposited under this law are for the use of the Library of Congress.

Mandatory deposit applies to works first published in a foreign country at the point at which they are distributed in the United States.

  • @Brookie: I have added the information for you. I'm not sure why you were trying to add a new section on the main page. Military topics are at Wikipedia:Requested articles/Social sciences/Military and military history. However, because you wanted an article about a person, the correct section was Wikipedia:Requested articles/Biography. That has two different sections: one orders people by profession and the other orders people by nationality (use the tables of contents). After I checked the obituary, I added him to both the "Military figures" and the "United Kingdom" sections. If you can provide a link to the Times obituary, that would be helpful. I hope this works for you. Happy editing! — Gorthian (talk) 00:34, 19 October 2016 (UTC)
