806.3 (A) The Work Must Be Fixed in a Tangible Medium of Expression
The U.S. Copyright Office may register a claim to copyright in a pantomime, provided that the specific movements, gestures, and facial expressions constituting the work have been fixed in a tangible medium of expression. 17 U.S.C. § 102 (A). As a general rule, the work should be fixed in a visually perceptible form, because pantomime involves the physical movements of a performer’s body which are visually perceived.
