2115.3 (D) Separate Work or Element of Authorship First Published in Larger Work

 

2115.3 (D) Separate Work or Element of Authorship First Published in Larger Work

 

This option is appropriate when a separate, distinct work or element of authorship within a larger work is owned separately from the larger work for the renewal term. Such a work is often adjunct (e.g., a foreword or annotated bibliography) or auxiliary (e.g., photographs in a biography) to the larger work as a whole, or it may be a separate work or element within a work that does not constitute joint authorship (e.g., illustrations in a children’s book). It is not applicable to composite works that consist of inseparable contributions, or to component elements of a unitary work, such as a motion picture.
