Question: barry is very dedicated to the arts and has made...

Question details

Barry is very dedicated to the arts and has made a career of purchasing copyrights to various art forms. Once purchased, he publicizes these works to capitalize on the copyrights and has been very successful. Last year, he acquired a book manuscript that he believes would be better suited to a mainstream publisher. He approaches a publisher about trading the book copyright for the copyright on the words and music for a new musical comedy that he heard the publisher acquired. Will the exchange qualify as a like-kind exchange?
