Will a phrase in a poem be protected if the poem is copyrighted?
Jurisdiction / State: Florida
I saw in an earlier post about trying to protect a slogan, that according to a case called Cook v. Robbins, a short expresion could be copyrightable if it was "embodied in an original idea and occurred in the context of a larger copyrightable work." Do you think that would apply if the short phrase (slogan) was a line in a copyrighted poem?
