Calculating Copyright Grant Terminations

One of the great benefits of our U.S. Copyright law is the ability for creators, authors, songwriters to terminate their assignment of copyright or certain grants/licenses that may have been made related to their copyright.

The copyright grant termination process can often be tedious as there are specific rules created by Congress as to how, when and who has the right to send the notice of termination of the copyright grant.

Our friends and colleagues at Wixen Music made calculating the dates a little easier with their handy online reversion and termination calculator found here.

Music lawyer Tamera Bennett wrote an overview of the process found here.   Click here to see more of Tamera's blog posts on termination of copyright grants.
