Description: On Monday, March 4, 2019, the Supreme Court issued unanimous opinions in Rimini Street Inc. v. Oracle USA Inc., and in Fourth Estate Public Benefit Corp. v. Wall-Street.com. The first settles the scope of costs a trial court may award to a victorious party subject to 17 U.S.C. ยง 505. The second settles the long-burning question as to whether registration, or merely application for registration, is a prerequisite for commencement of a copyright infringement suit. Please join us for a discussion on the significance and future implications of these decisions.
