Consequences of failure to exclude something in the “limitation of claim” field on US copyright application
posted 3 years ago
I'm willing to file out a US copyright application. I wish to learn regarding the potential consequences that will be happened if I fail to exclude something in the "limitation of claim" field.
The work I'm registering is a podcast and is comprised of:
- spoken material, written and recorded for the podcast
- short musical stings using themes from public domain (pre-1923) songs, recorded for the podcast
- recordings of songs that are already registered by me
- recordings of songs that are already registered by others, used by license
- recordings of songs by me that have been previously published by not registered with the - copyright office
I'm concerned that I may miss something. What are the consequences of leaving something out? Specifically:
Will the entire copyright be invalidated because I forgot to exclude something?
Are there any other penalties provided?
