Sutherland Counsel David E. Weslow is speaking at a seminar entitled "Co-Ownership in Copyright: Protecting IP Rights," Tuesday, April 21, 2009, from 1:00 to 2:30 p.m. EDT. This live teleconference will examine co-ownership of copyright, discuss the impact of recent federal appellate court decisions and offer best practices to protect ownership rights.
Recent Federal Circuit decisions are turning copyright co-ownership on its head. Copyright co-ownership includes collaboration on written work, music or software — or selling rights to two or more people. The question remains: can one musician license a co-written song for use in a film or can just one of a product’s programmers sell an application to a software maker?
During this seminar, a panel of IP attorneys will examine the principles and practices of copyright co-ownership and the potential impact of recent decisions in the Federal Circuit courts. The panel will offer perspectives on the best practices to protect such ownership rights. Following the speaker presentations, participants will have an opportunity to ask specific questions during the interactive Q&A.
