808.10 (G) (2) (C) Sounds Published on Different Dates


If an applicant submits two applications for the same published sounds – one application for a motion picture submitted on a DVD and one application for a soundtrack album submitted on a CD – and if the applicant provides a different date of publication on each application, the registration specialist will communicate with the applicant.


If the soundtrack album was published before the motion picture, the previously published album should be excluded from the claim in the motion picture.


If the motion picture was published before the album and if the sounds on the album are taken directly from the motion picture soundtrack and have been reprocessed without change, the specialist will refuse to issue a separate registration for the album, because all of those sounds are covered by the registration for the motion picture.
