Trade Secrets and Copyright Update

December 28, 2011

Below is a presentation providing a primer on trade secret and copyright law. This is followed by a detailed explanation of a portion of the 1976 Copyright Act that provides copyright holders the ability to terminate their licenses and assignments. The 1976 Act extended Copyright term and Congress gave authors the right to recover some of the new extended term from assignees and licensees. Statutory windows to provide notice of termination to initiate copyright licensee and assignment terminations for post 1978 copyrights are opening for the first time in 2013.
