IP Law: Updates Regarding Copyright-Infringement Litigation


The Supreme Court has recently decided two copyright cases, one clarifying the definition of “full costs” under the Copyright Act and the other resolving a circuit split in determining when “registration” occurs for purposes of filing a copyright-infringement complaint. In this presentation you will learn about these decisions, as well as other significant copyright decisions from the past twelve months.

I enjoyed the explanation of the different levels of statutory damages. I wished the slide shows had a breakdown of the decisions of the court. I learned about different arguments that could be made for digital 1st Sale Doctrines. I'd be interested in an update or any lower court opinions in this regard.
