807.3 (B) Series of Related Images

 

A key element of authorship in an audiovisual work is that the images must have some connection to one another and must be displayed as a series. See, e.g., Midway Manufacturing Co. v. Artic International, Inc., 704 F.2d 1009, 1011 (7th Cir. 1983) (construing series of related images “to refer to any set of images displayed as some kind of unit”). A slide presentation created as a cohesive work, for instance, is a series of images, while a single slide or unorganized group of random slides is not.
