F. W. Woolworth Co. v. Contemporary Arts, Inc.

Citation: 344 U.S. 228
Docket Number: 42
Opinion Date: December 22, 1952

The court ruled that a rule of liability which merely takes away the profits from a copyright infringement would offer little discouragement to infringers and will fall short of an effective sanction for enforcement of the copyright policy. The fact that petitioner proved that its gross profit from the infringement was a certain amount does not limit recovery to that amount.
