808.3 (D) Single, Integrated Work


A motion picture, including its production, direction, cinematography, performances, and editing, is a single, integrated work. Generally, a motion picture must be registered as a whole, with the possible exception of the screenplay and musical score. The individual elements that comprise a motion picture cannot be registered apart from the work as a whole. For example, one actor’s performance in a television show may not be registered apart from the rest of the motion picture.
