The Families First Coronavirus Response Act: Lawyer's Ethical Responsibilities in a Rapidly Changing Legislative, Administrative, and Judicial Environment (11/12/2020)

Program Number: 30270 Presenter: Tiffany R. Hubbard, Esq., Hugh F. Murray, III, Esq.

Congress passed the FFCRA early in the COVID-19 pandemic and extremely quickly. Two components of the FFCRA – The Emergency Paid Sick Leave Act and the Family Medical Leave Expansion Act – impacted most employers in the United States, providing generous new benefits funded by the federal government and operated through public and private employers. Those two laws interacted with a wide variety of pre-existing state and some federal laws, as well as employer policies and subsequent statutory developments in the CARES Act. The USDOL came out first with guidance, then with emergency regulations, that interpreted the FFCRA laws. Some of these regulations were challenged in court, and in August a court struck several of them down. USDOL then revised and reissued the regulations to address some of the concerns raised by the Court. Lawyers practicing in this area faced a wide variety of challenges, not the least of which was assessing

The Perils of Prenups: When is a Prenup Harmful, When is it Helpful, and How to Draft a Constructive One (06/26/2020)

Program Number: 30169 Presenter: Chaim Steinberger, Esq.

Prenuptial agreements are becoming more and more popular even as most people recognize that a prenup often hurts the betrotheds’ relationship and can cause the relationship itself to fail. In many instances a prenup accomplishes nothing so there's no reason to incur this risk. Yet in other instances, a prenup might actually be crucial. This presentation will explore the times that a prenup is not necessary and those times when it is; the harms a typical prenup causes; and how to prepare and negotiate one so that it improves, rather than harms, the betrotheds’ relationship.

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. To protect authors’ families from disinheritances, late-life lovers or squabbles among over-reaching heirs, Congress preempted state inheritance law and created statutory heirs. Congress’ statutory scheme benefitting authors and their families has been threatened by recent decisions of the Second and Ninth Circuits that have generated a recent cert petition to the Supreme Court in Steinbeck v. Kaffaga over film rights to The Grapes of Wrath. Many copyright termination disputes are now pending. Join Ray Dowd in examining this fascinating case and learn why understanding the issues at stake and the mechanics of copyright terminations is important for
