Copyright Termination and Recapture Laws
Good Intentions Gone Awry
By Marc H. Greenberg
Art is in the eye of the beholder, but the protection of the rights of artists and other creators is in the eye of the legislator. This book describes the history of Congressional efforts to give creators of copyright protected works an opportunity to renegotiate transfer agreements and related licensing agreements–first via a two-term system under the 1909 Act and then via a termination and recapture system under the 1976 Act. The book extensively evaluates policy and legislative evolution and provides thoughtful guidance on how practitioners can create, submit, and effectively prosecute termination requests under current law.
