2122.5 (E) Renewal Claim Includes Underlying Material
The release of a sound recording on a phonorecord prior to 1978 published the sound recording, but it did not constitute a publication of the recorded literary, musical, or dramatic work. 17 U.S.C. § 303 (B).Therefore, a renewal claim in a sound recording cannot include a claim in the recorded literary, musical, or dramatic work, even when an original registration record mistakenly includes a claim in the recorded material. For information regarding uncorrected errors in original registration records, see Section 2130.
