Copyright Termination

Apologies, but CLE credit is not currently available. We are working to raise new funds, redesign the website, and relaunch with new programs and fresh CLE offerings in the next few months. For now, feel free to listen to any of the archived programs for learning and enjoyment; and we will be back offering free CLE sometime toward the end of 2013 or start of 2014. Thanks for listening with us.



Copyright Termination

Copyright law has long recognized in authors an unwaivable right to terminate certain contracts and licensing agreements. A handful of high-profile cases have already called substantial attention to this termination provision, with disputes touching such iconic characters as Superman, Captain America, the Fantastic Four, Lassie, and Winnie the Pooh. In this edition of the IP Colloquium, copyright guru David Nimmer joins UC Berkeley Professor Peter Menell and UCLA Professor Doug Lichtman in an informal conversation about the termination right, its controversies, and the implications for modern copyright practice.
