2122.2 (A) First Published in a Motion Picture

 

When a play, script, or screenplay was registered for the original term before the motion picture was published, renewal registration may be based on the original registration record. When the dramatic work was not registered before the motion picture was published, renewal registration is possible only if the published motion picture contained a separate copyright notice for the dramatic work.

 

NOTE: A renewal registration in a component element of a published motion picture, or in a work fixed and first published in a motion picture, cannot be based on the original registration for the motion picture.
