Music Used in Performance
Participants are required to submit an application for the musical piece they plan to use at KIDC to JASRAC (Japanese Society for Rights of Authors, Composers and Publishers). According to Japanese copyright law, a musical composition remains under copyright protection for 70 years after the copyright owner has died.
This does not apply to most of the classical pieces, but does apply to compositions such as the Cipollino Variation. Therefore, we will confirm the copyright status of the musical piece written on your entry form. Thank you for your cooperation.
Original musical compositions used in the Contemporary categories do not apply either, so be sure to indicate on your entry form if you are using original music.
For participants who use a copyright-protected music, please pay at the reception desk on the day. We appreciate your understanding.
If you are unsure whether the piece you wish to use is under copyright, then contact JASRAC.
If copyright exists in choreography among selected works, please do procedure by yourself. (Example: Va. from “Tschaikovsky Pas de Deux” choreographed by Balanchine)
Be sure to obtain a visa if you need one to enter Japan.
