Substantial Copyright Settlement for a Leading Media Company
In June 2012, the firm obtained a substantial settlement for a leading media company in an important copyright case for the industry. On behalf of our client, our team asserted copyright infringement claims against a web-based software service in response to its regular reproduction and distribution of our client’s copyrighted articles to its subscribers, who include public relations professionals at corporations throughout the United States. Our client’s content was originally published mainly in the print and online editions of top news and business publications. Ultimately, the web-based software service paid a significant sum to settle our client’s claim that it engaged in unauthorized reproduction, distribution, and other misuse of proprietary news content.
