Latin Am. Music Co. v. Am. Soc’y of Composers, Authors, and Publishers

Docket Number: 10-1780
Opinion Date: April 21, 2011

After successfully defending an appeal from a verdict that it had not infringed a song copyright, ASCAP obtained an award of about $62,000 in attorney fees. The First Circuit affirmed. The song copyright was timely registered and, in any case, failure to timely register would not bar an award of fees to a party successfully defending an infringement claim. ASCAP was a prevailing party under 17 U.S.C. 505 and the award was reasonable. View “Latin Am. Music Co. v. Am. Soc’y of Composers, Authors, and Publishers” on Justia Law
