About this Program

In Part II of this Two Part Series, intellectual property attorneys Sheila and Gerald Levine teach attorneys how to best represent their client authors and publishers when negotiating publishing contracts.  This course will begin by highlighting the most important negotiating terms (including non-competition, next book option, revised editions and agency clauses).  Mr. and Mrs. Levine will also explain how exclusive licenses are affected by contract clauses, Section 203 of the Copyright Act, as well as the seminal case of Milne Ex. Rel. Coyne v. Slesinger.  Finally, the course will provide important updates related to the terms and royalty models for e-book contracts.  This series is a must see for all attorneys working in the publishing industry.

Learning Objectives:

I.   Understanding Print Publishing Contracts
II.  Understanding Termination of Exclusive Licenses
III. Understanding Digital Publishing: E-Book Contracts
