The contrast between rights deals for trade and academic titles could perhaps be illustrated by contrasting a competitive auction conducted by telephone for translation rights in a new novel by a bestselling author, with an application for low-price English-language reprint rights in an academic textbook from a developing country, perhaps involving a print run of 1,000 copies. The former could generate a six or even seven-figure income up front. The latter might produce a total income of only a few hundred pounds during the life of the licence, but it might well require prompt action, complex legalized documentation, and an awareness of local legislation in order to prevent piracy or a compulsory licence being granted and hence loss of control of the book in the market concerned.

The BCIA amended some of the formalities that had hitherto been a feature of American domestic copyright legislation, in particular the formal requirement that a copyright notice be printed inside a work to maintain copyright and the requirement for deposit and registration of works with the Library of Congress. However, it is still a requirement that works first published outside the USA and published in the USA via distribution or licensing arrangements should be deposited with the Library of Congress; it is also a prerequisite for US works and foreign works from non-Berne countries to be registered if a copyright suit is filed in the USA.

The sui generis right is a property right rather than copyright, and also covers computer-created compilations such as telephone directories. Under the new Regulations, databases (whether in electronic or other form) are protected from unauthorized extraction and reuse for a period of fifteen years from the end of the year in which the database was completed. If the database is subsequently updated and the revisions are viewed as substantial, the fifteen-year period can be extended accordingly. Some fair dealing for educational and academic purposes is permitted.
