Earlier today, we announced the launch of our new Termination of Transfer tool, developed with our partners at Creative Commons. The online tool, located at rightsback.org, helps authors understand the eligibility and timing requirements for terminating transfers. To effectuate a termination right, authors need to provide notice to the party whose grant is being terminated and submit a copy of that notice to the U.S. Copyright Office. So to complement the tool, we developed a new resource that includes notice of termination templates and accompanying information.
We’re grateful to law students Sean Doran, Luke Ewing, and Andi Wilt, and their supervisor Blake Reid, at the Colorado Law Samuelson-Glushko Technology Law & Policy Clinic; and law students Eric Malmgren, Erica Row, and Julia Wu, and their supervisor Jack Lerner, at UC Irvine Intellectual Property, Arts, and Technology Clinic for their assistance with the development of these templates.
Check out our new Termination of Transfer resource page for more information about the online tool, the templates, and related news!20180315-ToT-Templates
