6th Circuit Copyright Updates

Copyright law is a rapidly evolving field.  And a surprisingly large portion of the country’s copyright litigation happens within the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit.  This is the federal court that hears appeals from judges in Michigan, Ohio, Kentucky, and Tennessee.

I was once a law clerk for a Sixth Circuit judge, and today most of my IP litigation practice takes place within this jurisdiction.  So the way this court deals with copyright issues is a subject near and dear to my heart.

On this page, I will summarize rulings in copyright cases from the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals, the various federal district courts within Michigan, Ohio, Kentucky, and Tennessee, and even occasional state court decisions that address these issues. These concise updates will provide a quick-glance guide to the state of copyright law within this important jurisdiction.
