806.3 (B) Capacity for Uniform Performance

806.3 (B) Capacity for Uniform Performance


A pantomime should be fixed in a form that depicts or describes the movements, gestures, and facial expressions in sufficient detail to permit the work to be performed. In addition, the specific movements and physical actions that constitute the pantomime should be fixed in a form that allows the work to be performed in a consistent and uniform manner. Any copy or phonorecord that satisfies this requirement will suffice, such as a written description of the work or an actual performance of the work captured in a motion picture. See Kalem, 222 U.S. at 61 (“The essence of the matter . . . is not the mechanism employed, but that we see the event or story lived.”).
