First of all I'd like to express my gratitude to the specialists who give some of their valuable time to answer the questions asked here.
I'm a film director and I'm preparing a short film where we would need to re-enact, with an actor, the live coverage of an American TV channel during a historical event. In the coverage, there was no pre-written speech, just live reactions.
I am wondering if those live comments are subject to copyright, or if I can use an actor to repeat them. It is my understanding that this is not literature, and therefore not subject to copyright, but I am certainly no lawyer.
I would be extremely grateful for some help here
All the best
