Low Risk, High Rewards: Legal Protections for Non-profit Boards

Written by Rosanne Felicello on . Posted in .
According to the National Council of Nonprofits, there more than 1.4 million 501(c)(3) charitable nonprofits in the United States alone. This nonprofit sector is a vital part of our national and local infrastructure, providing important services and advocacy for a wide range of people in urban, suburban and rural areas. Often, the people who serve as officers and directors for non-profits do so because the mission of the non-profit aligns with their interests and concerns. These well-meaning board members may not be aware of the potential liability that attaches with service as an officer or director of a non-profit. Because non-profits by…

Written by Rosanne Felicello on . Posted in .
Sixty years after Andy Warhol first painted Campbell Soup cans, the question of “what is art?” is again being asked of one of his works. But this time the question is being asked in the highest court of the land rather than the court of public opinion. What an ironic twist. The Supreme Court is being asked what is a transformative use that does not infringe another’s copyright, a question as close to deciding what art is as any court is likely to get.

How the Second Circuit’s Decision in ‘Horror v. Miller’ May Haunt Production Companies for Years To Come

Written by Rosanne Felicello on . Posted in .
Like Jason’s appearance at the end of Friday the 13th, the Second Circuit’s recent decision in Horror Inc. v. Miller, No. 18-3123-cv, 2021 U.S. App. LEXIS 29479 (2d Cir. Sept. 30, 2021) invokes new life into the Copyright Act’s termination provision. 17 U.S.C.S. §203. Although the statute became effective on Jan. 1, 1978, the prospective nature of its terms meant that it did not have practical applicability until relatively recently. Under certain conditions, §203 of the Copyright Act provides that the author of a work “other than a work made for hire” may terminate the grant of a transfer or license under any copyright executed on or afte…
