When suing for copyright infringement in a foreign court, two of the things 
you have to prove is that you actually own the copyright to the item in 
question, and that the copyright has not yet expired. A copyright 
registration certificate from a reputable foreign body, such as the US 
Government copyright office, would be quite a compelling piece of evidence 
in such a case.
