808.10 (G) (2) (A) Sounds Published on the Same Date
If the same sounds are published on DVD and CD on the same day, and they contain the same fixation of sounds:
• If the applicant prefers to register the sounds as part of the motion picture, the applicant should only submit an application for the motion picture.
• If the applicant prefers to register the sounds as a sound recording, the applicant should submit separate claims for the motion picture and the sound recording. The sounds should be excluded from the claim in the motion picture by stating “sounds registered separately as a sound recording” in the Material Excluded field. Both claims will be registered.
