What is a pseudonymous work?

The Copyright Act defines a pseudonymous work as a work where the author’s identity is provided as a fictitious name (such as where an author publishes a book under a pen name). It does not matter if the public actually knows who the author is - if the copies or phonorecords do not include the author’s actual identity, but instead include a fictitious name, the work is pseudonymous.
