'I'll Be Back': Termination rights under Section203 of the Copyright Act

July/August 2012

Intellectual Property Magazine

Starting next year, authors of copyrighted works and their heirs can terminate copyright assignments previously granted under the Copyright Act of 1976. Section 203 of the Act gives authors the right to terminate previous transfers of copyright interest during "a period of five years beginning at the end of the thirty-five years from the date of execution of the grant." All an author must do to preserve her rights is provide a notice "not less than two or more than ten years before" the date she wants to recapture her copyrighted interests.
