Live Teleconference CLE Seminar
Terminations of Transfers Under the Copyright Law: A Complex and Very Timely Topic
November 1, 2012 • December 20, 2012 (Rebroadcast)
This course has been canceled. We apologize for any inconvenience that this may have caused.
This CLE course is not only for intellectual property attorneys but also probate and estate planning as well as divorce and family law attorneys.
Under the 1976 Copyright Act, Congress provided a mechanism to allow authors and their statutory successors to terminate certain agreements that were entered into both before and after January 1, 1978. The mechanism and the law are very complex. And yet this topic could not possibly be more timely. The first date at which termination of transfers for agreements entered into after January 1, 1978 can be effective is January 1, 2013, which is just around the corner. There are also already many agreements already subject to possible termination as to agreements entered into before January 1, 1978. This course will discuss these topics among others: 1. Termination of Transfer Provisions, 2. Probate Issues and 3. Divorce Issues.
