805.8 (A) Choreographic Works Embodied in Dramatic Works or Audiovisual Works

805.8 (A) Choreographic Works Embodied in Dramatic Works or Audiovisual Works


The choreography in a musical, a music video, or a motion picture may be registered as a choreographic work (or as a contribution to a dramatic work or audiovisual work), provided that the dance contains a sufficient amount of copyrightable authorship and provided that the dance is claimed as a distinct form of authorship in the application.


If an applicant submits an application to register a choreographic work embodied in a dramatic work or an audiovisual work, the registration only extends to the copyrightable choreography disclosed in that work.


NOTE: The applicant should not assert a claim in choreography if the choreographic work was previously registered as a component part of a motion picture or a dramatic work as a whole.
