The APP deposits may be submitted to the courts of all States that are parties to the Berne Convention.

The Berne Convention provides, in particular, that if the author originates from one of the signatory countries of the said Convention or if the work was first published in one of these countries, the author is automatically protected by the provisions of the Berne Convention. Consequently, it enjoys in each of the Contracting States the same protection as that granted by that State to national authors.

As of February 1, 2018, 175 countries are signatories to the Berne Convention. You will find a complete list of these countries on the WIPO (World Intellectual Property Organization) website.
