The Elusive Termination Right: Where Does it Stand? Sponsored by the Copyright Society of the USA
Thursday, April 4 at 1:45 pm - 3:15 pm ET
the Copyright Act of 1976 Congress extended the term of copyright
protection and included two termination of transfer provisions that give
authors the benefit of the extension. Since 1976, many factors have
changed when it comes to the termination right. Where the termination
right stands today including, when it is available, and how effective it
is to the terminating author or his/ her heirs will be presented in
this program. Discussion will focus on the background of termination
history/mechanics, renegotiation issues, recapture—the limitations on
what is/is not recaptured, and the latest on hot topics such as,
termination of "master” recordings in the music industry and (other)
"work for hire” disputes.
