So Long, And Thanks For All The BriefsJames sent me an excellent link to an analysis prepared by the law firm of Wilson, Sonsini, Goodrich & Rosati in regards to the Vernor vs. Autodesk case. It's here:
Most importantly, they mention two other cases pending before the court:
This year there are two other closely followed cases before the Ninth Circuit, UMG Recordings v. Augusto and MDY Industries v. Blizzard Entertainment, which will determine whether transactions involving books, music, films, games, and other copyrighted works are also subject to the three-prong test for determining whether users of a licensed work are considered to be owners or licensees. The Vernor v. Autodesk case itself may also not be over yet. Vernor's attorney may ask for a full-panel, en banc review by the Ninth Circuit of the September 10 ruling, and possibly consider an appeal to the Supreme Court.
And with that, coverage of this court case, thankfully, has come to its conclusion. Mostly.
