Revised Agreement. Attached is a revised Working Draft of the model agreement, with a redlined copy showing changes from the April 2015 Working Draft. This revision addresses some issues discussed at the spring meeting . Some other changes are editorial in nature, or are intended to clarify the text. Please note especially the new defined term "IP Security Document", which is intended to cover whatever document is to be filed in the Copyright Office or PTO, as applicable. New footnote 12 also addresses recording procedures.
Exhibit 1. Also attached is an initial draft of Exhibit 1, which is the short-form copyright security agreement to be recorded with the Copyright Office to cover the listed registered copyrights and copyright applications. This would be the applicable "IP Security Document" for copyrights. I anticipate that Exhibit 2 (Patents) and Exhibit 3 (Trademarks) will be similar, once this one is approved.
Introductory Report. The report is still undergoing revision, and NOW would be a really good time for you to send any comments, suggestions or corrections!
Please call in to the meeting if you can, and feel free to send me any comments, questions or suggestions, in any format you like. Thanks for your participation and interest!
Kathi Allen, Co-Chair
