The Copyright Act contains a rule for dealing with anonymous or pseudonymous works. It is not possible to automatically determine whether works are created by a creator using a pseudonym (this is not coded in the MARC records). However, in cases where the author is unknown or not recorded, the Copyright Status Tool uses the anonymous rule to calculate copyright status.

This rule also applies to corporate (non-government) creators by default, because there is no rule for non-government creators without life dates in the Copyright Act.
