More attempts would follow. In 1963, performer Faith Dane sued M&H Company for royalties for her choreography in “Gypsy” and lost. In the 1950s and 1960s, choreographer Agnes de Mille advocated for copyrights specific to choreography because she got very limited royalties for her work on the hit musical “Oklahoma!” It wasn’t until 1976 that copyright protection was updated to specifically include choreographic works. But this hasn’t exactly led to a windfall of royalties for choreographers.
