2009 WL 1408741 (D. Minn. 2009)

  • Represented Defendants
  • A copyright infringement action
  • Represented Defendant in motion to dismiss action because copyright registration had not issued at the time the suit was filed.  This was an interesting case because the U.S. Circuit Court’s of Appeal are split on the issue of whether a federal case can be brought after filing the copyright application or whether one must wait for the copyright registration certificate to issue before filing suit.  This makes it ripe for U.S. Supreme Court review.
