Fixation Requirement

This lesson discusses the requirement that a work be "fixed in a tangible medium of expression" as a condition to obtaining copyright protection. Although it assumes a basic familiarity with copyright law and terminology, it is designed to stand alone. It can, therefore, be used either as an introduction to the fixation requirement or as a review of those concepts after a class discussion.

NOTE: This lesson is intended as an overview of this topic; it does not cover all the details related to live performances or the recently decided cases declaring unconstitutional sec. 1101.
