Efficient contracting under the U.S. copyright termination law
Michael Karas and
International Review of Law and Economics, 2018, vol. 54, issue C, 39-48
The American copyright act from 1976 has drawn much attention in the literature, however it has received little consideration by economists. We contribute to this literature by taking up the assumption that publishers may internalize the harm from termination decisions and illuminate the consequences for the contractual relationship between authors and publishers.
