‘Window’ for Terminating a Copyright Transfer Agreement Opens in 2013
by George H. Pike
A little-known provision of the Copyright Act of 1976 could wreak further havoc on a publishing industry already struggling to deal with the transition from traditional print formats to digital content. Section 203 on the Copyright Act allows the original author(s) of creative works to terminate any transfer or licensing agreement 35 years after the license was signed and "reclaim" their copyrights. As this provision went into effect on Jan. 1, 1978, the "window" for terminations will open on Jan. 1, 2013. However, as this termination "window" is only open for a limited period, authors may lose their termination rights if they don't take steps promptly.

The Fight for a Free and Open Internet
by Paula J. Hane
Vinton Cerf is worried. Cerf is credited with helping to develop the protocols and structure of the internet and the first commercial email system. Now he fears forces are at work that threaten to undermine the free and open nature of the net. He notes that, "The internet has become one of the motors of the 21st century economy, allowing all of us to reach a global audience at a click of a mouse and creating hundreds of thousands of businesses and millions of jobs." But he cautioned, "Today, this free and open net is under threat. Some 42 countries filter and censor content out of the 72 studied by the Open Net Initiative (ONI). This doesn't even count serial offenders such as North Korea and Cuba. Over the past 2 years, Freedom House says governments have enacted 19 new laws threatening online free expression." Cerf and many others worry that a meeting that starts today (Dec. 3, 2012, in Dubai, United Arab Emirates) could prove problematic.
