803.3 (A) Performance Authorship

803.3 (A) Performance Authorship


Examples of performance authorship include playing an instrument, singing, speaking, or creating other sounds that are captured and fixed in the sound recording. Individual performance authorship may be claimed only if the sound recording is comprised solely of an individual performance that is sufficiently creative. If a performance is part of an integrated work (e.g., a band performance), the Office will not accept a claim in an individual performer’s contribution to that work.
