Thomas Jefferson School of Law Alumna Lacy J Lodes’08 and Licensing Director of CONSOR, an Intellectual Asset Management Firm, is one of the expert speakers who will appear at the “New Beginning in the End: Sound Recording Copyright Terminations – A Discussion and Debate” on Thursday, August 16 during a 90-Minute Live Webinar. The event is presented by The American Bar Association Section of Intellectual Property Law, Forum on the Entertainment and Sports Industries, and the ABA Center for Continuing Legal Education.
Lodes will address the value of sound recordings to each party. She will discuss the changes to licensing since the original transfer of rights, and what each party should consider when addressing the termination or renegotiation of sound recording transfers.
According to the CONSOR website “The Copyright Act grants an author the right to terminate a grant of rights thirty-five years after a grant of transfer or license. Because the termination right applies to works created on or after January 1, 1978, countless authors are expected to seek to regain their copyrights beginning in 2013.”
