2. The Coming Copyright Termination Crisis
Wednesday, February 16, 2011 12:30 - 2:00 PM Eastern

Click HERE to Register!

Course Description:
It is one of the more underappreciated and surprising features of our copyright regime and, for decades, it has received scant attention. Under the 1976 Copyright Act, which went into effect on January 1, 1978, authors who license or assign their copyrights have the right to unilaterally terminate such agreements thirty-five years later. This so-called termination right is not capable of being waived by contract and can be exercised without any consideration. The first set of copyright assignments governed by the 1976 Copyright Act become eligible for termination on January 1, 2013. As a result, a looming crisis over termination rights is on the horizon.

Termination puts at issue ownership rights to some of our most visible (and valuable) cultural works. In recent years, termination disputes (for works created under the 1909 Copyright Act) have involved such beloved franchises as Superman, Winnie the Pooh, the songs of Bob Marley, the plays of William Soroyan, Lassie, the novels of John Steinbeck and Captain America. And with the flood of new works becoming eligible for termination in 2013, multi-billion dollar disputes will inevitably arise.

This CLE prepares practitioners for the coming termination crisis. After covering the history of and public policy interests behind the termination right, we examine the particular termination provisions of the Copyright Act. Specifically, we chart the provisions’ demanding procedural requirements that render, in the words of one noted commentator, successful termination a “feat accomplished against all odds.” We then turn our attention to the substantive questions that remain unanswered about termination rights—questions that are likely to be resolved by litigation over the next decade. Among other things, we highlight remaining ambiguities in copyright’s works-made-forhire doctrine—ambiguities that will determine a work’s eligibility for termination and have a profound impact on the content-creation industries for years to come.
