Works Made for Hire

Tuesday, Sep 15, 2020

12:00pm – 12:00pm

Presented by Ana Enriquez
In this interactive session, participants will review current U.S. law on works made for hire, explore tricky areas (including the “teacher exception”), learn about the “instance and expense” test (the previous U.S. approach to this issue, still crucial to many copyright determinations), and take a whirlwind tour of other countries’ approach to this issue. Participants will then be asked to apply these legal tests to a set of hypotheticals. This session is designed for participants who are already familiar with the basics of copyright law, including sole and joint authorship, works made for hire, licenses, and transfers.
