Yesterday IPAT Clinic client Authors Alliance launched a beta version of their Copyright Termination of Transfer Tool as part of Open Access Week, together with Creative Commons. United States copyright law allows for authors to reclaim the copyrights to their works approximately thirty-five years after signing them over to someone else. Every day, numerous works become eligible to have their copyrights returned to the original authors, in a process called “termination of transfer.” Often these works have gone out of print or become hard to find, and so termination represents an opportunity to make countless works available that would otherwise languish in obscurity. But the provision that makes termination possible is extremely complicated, with harsh deadlines and difficult factual questions. With the Termination of Transfer Tool, Authors Alliance seeks to educate authors about how these provisions work. Take a minute to check out the public beta, and feel free to spread the word. Most importantly, please let us know what you think!
