Waite et al v. UMG Recordings, Inc. et al

Filing 119

ORDER denying 90 MOTION for Reconsideration re 89 Memorandum & Opinion. Defendants' motion for reconsideration (DI 90) is denied. To the extent that defendants seek clarification on the Court's memorandum opinion (DI 89), it suffi ces to say only that the Court's holding was limited to the following: Consistent with the Copyright Office's practice of accepting for recordation termination notices of gap grants subject to certain conditions, the Court holds that a gr ant agreed to before January 1, 1978, for works created on or after that date, is terminable under 17 U.S.C. § 203, so long as either (1) the termination notice recites, as the date of execution, the date on which the work was created, or (2) if the termination notice fails to do so, the date on which the work was created is otherwise alleged and the termination notice's omission of that date is deemed to be a harmless error. SO ORDERED. (Signed by Judge Lewis A. Kaplan on 1/7/2021) (jca)
