Abstract: Laudal's lemma states that if $ C$ is a curve of degree $ d>s^2+1$ in $ \mathbb{P}^3$ over an algebraically closed field of characteristic 0 such that its plane section is contained in an irreducible curve of degree $ s$, then $ C$ lies on a surface of degree $ s$. We show that the same result does not hold in positive characteristic and we find different bounds $ d>f(s)$ which ensure that $ C$ is contained in a surface of degree $ s$.
