Intellectual Property Litigation: SCOTUS to Decide Copyrightability of Georgia Code Annotations
September 12, 2019 Download PDF
Litigation partners Lewis Clayton and Eric Stone’s latest intellectual property litigation column, “SCOTUS to Decide Copyrightability of Georgia Code Annotations,” appeared in the September 11 issue of the New York Law Journal. The article focuses on a Supreme Court case that will decide whether the “government edicts” doctrine precludes Georgia from copyrighting the annotations in the Official Code of Georgia Annotated. The court's holding has the potential to affect not only the state of Georgia, but the 20 other states that have registered copyrights in all or part of their state codes, and may have implications for the copyright status of other government-approved works. Litigation associate Michael Milea assisted in the preparation of this article.
