2207.8 Multi-Part Works
One notice per unit of publication is adequate for multi-part works (e.g., box sets, multimedia kits, score, and parts) published in copies or phonorecords, provided that a proper notice is used and it is affixed in a manner and location that gives reasonable notice of the claim to copyright in the entire unit of publication.
Although one notice per unit of publication is legally sufficient, placing a notice on each part of a multi-part work ensures that the public is put on notice that the copyright owner has asserted a claim to copyright in each part of the unit.
• A notice on the first disk of a twelve disc collection is acceptable for the entire collection, but a notice on the sixth disc of a twelve disc collection is only acceptable for that disc.
• A notice properly positioned on a unit consisting of a musical score and parts is acceptable for the entire unit, but a notice only on one or more of the parts is acceptable only for those parts.
• A notice on the permanent container or box for a multimedia kit is acceptable.
