Section 203 Copyright Recapture Terminations

Wednesday, March 16
3:30PM - 4:30PM

Austin Convention Center
Room 15
531 E 4th St

The Copyright Act allows authors to reclaim ownership of their works during a 5-year window starting on the 35th anniversary of conveyance. Panel on: (1) the number of recapture termination notices recorded with the U.S. Copyright Office to date is quantitatively small; (2) there should have been more activity in this area by now; (3) several possible reasons why we have not seen more such activity; (4) whether recapture termination activity will increase and why; and (5) artists of all types should all take note of the law because the right lasts only for a window of 5 years after which the inalienable right to recapture termination is lost forever.
