Musicians Reclaim Their Copyrights

Friday, August 26, 2011


In 1976 Congress changed copyright law so that any musician who wrote a song after January 1st, 1978 could apply to reclaim rights to those songs after 35 years.  So in 2013 there’s a long line of 1978 hitmakers who stand to regain their valuable songs and albums.  Duke professor James Boyle explains to Brooke why the windfall for Bruce Springsteen, Billy Joel, Funkadelic and others is being fought tooth and nail by the record industry.
