2107 Benefits Secured by Timely Renewal Registration

2107 Benefits Secured by Timely Renewal Registration

The Renewal Act provides the following benefits for timely renewal registration:

• The certificate of renewal registration constitutes prima facie evidence as to the validity of the copyright during its renewal term, and of the facts stated in the certificate.

• A derivative work made before the expiration of the original term of copyright under the authority of a grant of a transfer or license of copyright cannot continue to be used under the terms of the grant during the renewal term without the authority of the owner of the renewal copyright.

• The timely renewal registration determined in whom the renewal copyright would vest upon the beginning of the renewal term. For a discussion of this issue, see Section 2115.5 (D).
