Q:Foreign copyright protection

 I have a question regarding significance of copyright protection
 afforded by a member Berne Convention nation.  If I have a 
 registered U.S. copyrightfor computer software I developed,
 I know my intellectual property rights are protected in member
 nations, but am I required to register my copyright in that 
 foreign country if I wish to license my software to users in
 that country?
 Reply by email is fine.
 I would appreciate whatever guidance anyone might offer (and I
 am in the process of consulting an attorney who is familiar
 with foreign filing).
