Los Angeles News Service v. Tullo

Citation: 973 F.2d 791
Opinion Date: August 27, 1992

Los Angeles News Service (“LANS”) recorded newsworthy events on videotape and licensed television stations and networks to use all or segments of the unedited (“raw”) footage in edited broadcast news stories. Audio Video Reporting Services (“AVRS”) made video recordings of these news programs, which included portions of LANS’s footage, and marketed the recordings. LANS sued, claiming copyright infringement. The District Court entered judgment for LANS on the copyright infringement claims. The Court of Appeals affirmed. Because AVRS sold their clips it negated their fair use defense.
