Location of Puerto Rico

Puerto Rico is an unincorporated territory of the United States located in the northeast Caribbean Sea. The island was subject to Spain until gaining limited self-government on 17 July 1898. The United States invaded the island on 25 July 1898, and it was formally ceded by Spain to the United States on 11 April 1899. The island was an unincorporated organized territory until 1952, when it became a United States unincorporated organized territory with commonwealth constitution. The island retains local laws, but is subject to United States federal law.

Copyright is governed by the US Copyright Act 1976, a Federal statute, and subsequent amendments. Moral rights are governed by state laws, but this should not affect when a work enters the public domain.[1]
