Baisden v. I’m Ready Productions, Inc., et al.

Docket Number: 11-20290
Judge: King
Opinion Date: August 31, 2012

Plaintiff, the host of a nationally syndicated radio show and the author of several books, appealed an adverse judgment in his suit against various defendants for copyright infringement, breach of contract, and tortious interference. Defendants cross-appealed the denial of attorneys’ fees. Because the court agreed that the facts of this case supported the creation of an exclusive license as to the first work at issue, and an implied nonexclusive license as to the second work at issue, the court affirmed the jury’s verdict that defendants did not infringe on plaintiff’s copyrights. The court rejected the remaining challenges to the district court’s judgment and affirmed in all respects. View “Baisden v. I’m Ready Productions, Inc., et al.” on Justia Law
