Bad Contracts Are Not Forever: A Review of The Statutory Right of Termination In Section 203 of the Copyright Act
With Ed Klaris, Mary Rasenberger

Many authors are unaware of a key provision of the U.S. copyright law that lets them recapture their rights after thirty-five years. Section 203 of the Copyright allows authors a second bite of the apple: a right to terminate any assignment, license, or transfer of copyright (except works made for hire). In this webinar copyright attorney Ed Klaris and Authors Guild executive director Mary Rasenberger will discuss this important right that Congress built into copyright law and the formalities for getting your rights back.

Mary Rasenberger (moderator) is the Executive Director of the Authors Guild. Prior to joining the Guild, Mary practiced law for over 25 years, specializing in media and copyright law, and served as senior policy advisor for the U.S. Copyright Office and program manager at the Library of Congress.

With his 25 years in the media and entertainment sector, Ed is a recognized expert on intellectual property, privacy, and media law and has extensive experience building revenue from content and other IP. His clients turn to him to be outside general counsel, for specific matters, and to handle issues through settlement or litigation. Ed started Klaris Law in 2014 when he saw a need for a true boutique firm, with flexible pricing, providing deep knowledge in a complicated sector.
