The Buenos Aires Convention (or Convention on Literary and Artistic Copyright) is an international copyright treaty. It was signed at Buenos Aires on 11 August 1910. The countries which signed it agreed to respect the copyrights of the other countries. For a document to be covered by this convention, its copyright statement must use the proper wording. Often, the phrase "All rights reserved" (Spanish: Todos los derechos reservados, Portuguese: Todos os direitos reservados) was used. However, the United States only required the name of the writer and the year that the work was published.
