Bone McAllester Norton attorney Stephen Zralek moderated a panel of distinguished faculty on Termination of Transfer Rights on May 3, 2010.
The seminar addressed provisions of the Copyright Act that allow authors to recapture rights to their works, which they may have transferred earlier in exchange for getting their works published. Recapture rights currently is one of the biggest issues in copyright law, as the Copyright Act allows authors to exercise such rights only within certain windows of time, some of which are opening and/or closing in the next few years. The seminar was produced by the American Bar Association Copyright Litigation Committee, of which Stephen is Vice Chair.
