The Copyright Revision Act of 1976 includes a provision granting songwriters and other creators the right to recapture the copyrights to their songs.
Although the specifics are complicated, generally speaking, songs you wrote after 1977 are eligible to be recaptured after 35 years; songs you wrote before 1978 are eligible to be recaptured after 56 years.
This could be one of the most important panel discussions you attend in your lifetime - for you AND your heirs.
