If the work is a derivative dramatic work or a compilation of dramatic works, and the underlying works are used with permission, the applicant should identify and exclude any preexisting work or material from the claim and should provide a brief description of the new material that the author contributed to the work.

 

When completing an online application, the applicant should provide this information in the Material Excluded and New Material Included fields. When completing a paper application, the application should provide this information in the Preexisting Material and Material Added to This Work space. For information on how to complete these portions of the application, see Chapter 600, Section 621.8.

 

Example:

 

• The work is a screenplay by Steve Morse based on the well-known novel The Lemon Tartlette by Rochelle Oiseaux. In the Material Excluded field the applicant states “The Lemon Tartlette by Rochelle Oiseaux, used by permission,” and in the Author Created and New Material Included fields the applicant states “screenplay by Steve Morse.” The claim will be registered.
