Legal Issues Seminar-General IP (LIS-GIP) On “Would The Copyright In A Work Be Reassigned To The Assignor Upon Termination Of The Assignment Agreement?”

Featuring: Nivrati Gupta

A ‘Legal Issues Seminar – General IP’ (LIS-GIP) was conducted by Nivrati Gupta, Trainee Associate, on ‘Would the Copyright in a Work be reassigned to the Assignor upon Termination of the Assignment Agreement?’.

The seminar explored the relevant provisions of the Copyright Act 1957, which discuss the requirements of a valid assignment of a copyright. The session analyzed recent jurisprudential developments regarding reassignment upon termination, clarifying that the assignor cannot claim that the copyright stood re-assigned to the original assignor, unless the copyright in the work has been re-assigned in writing, as required under the statute. The session concluded with a discussion around the distinction of copyright in a work and the assertion of a money claim in lieu of the assigned copyright.
