Lessons from John Steinbeck's The Grapes of Wrath: Copyright Terminations Under Sections 203 and 304 of the Copyright Act (06/03/2020)

Program Number: 30159 Presenter: Raymond Dowd, Esq.

In 1976 and 1998 Congress extended the terms of copyright. Congress intended for authors to receive the full economic benefit of the extended copyright terms by granting authors and their heirs inalienable rights to recapture copyrights. These recaptured copyrights, vesting free of all prior grants, could then be re-licensed on economic terms favorable to authors.

Protecting Artists’ Legacies in the Contemporary Art Market (02/10/2020)

Program Number: 3005 Presenter: Adam Buchwalter, Esq., Jana Farmer, Esq.

The conventions of the contemporary art market present unique challenges to artists and those entrusted with stewardship of artists’ legacies, including preserving the value of their artworks, maintaining their authenticity, and even material conservation of the artworks in their original form. Unlike traditional paintings and sculptures, which possess definitive materiality, conceptual artworks or artworks that need to be reactivated rely on documentation as an integral part of the work itself, making the relationship between artists or artist’s estates and purchasers increasingly more contractual. This panel will discuss the risks and best practices for artists and artists’ estates to protect an artist’s legacy through advance planning, including the unique challenges presented by conceptual and nonmaterial artworks and considerations for artists’ wills and foundations.
