806.7 Application Tips for Pantomimes


When registering a claim in a pantomime using the online application, the applicant

should select “Work of the Performing Arts” as the “Type of Work.” When registering a claim using a paper application, the applicant should complete Form PA.


The applicant should provide the name of the author who created the pantomime authorship that appears in the work and the applicant should provide the name of the claimant who owns the copyright in that material.


The Performing Arts Division may accept a claim in “pantomime,” “mime,” or even “dumb show,” provided that the work is a pantomime under Section 102 (A) (4) of the Copyright Act and provided that it contains a sufficient amount of original expression. When completing an online application, this information should be provided in the box marked “Other” that appears in the Author Created field, and if applicable, also in the New Material Included field. When completing a paper application on Form PA, this information should be provided in space 2, and if applicable, also in space 6 (B). For guidance on completing these portions of the application, see Chapter 600, Sections

618.4 and 621.8.
