Daily Journal: The race to register: Will copyright applicants win or lose?

Rod Berman, Jessica Bromall Sparkman, and Remi Salter wrote the article, “The race to register: Will copyright applicants win or lose?” published by the Daily Journal. The article focuses on Fourth Estate Public Benefit Corp. v. Wall-Street.com, LLC (17-571), which is on the U.S. Supreme Court’s docket for its upcoming term. The high court’s decision will resolve a long-standing split on whether a plaintiff must have a certificate of copyright registration in hand before initiating a copyright infringement lawsuit, or if the filing of application alone suffices.
