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

In 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.

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.
