Wilson v. Dynatone Publishing Co.

Docket Number: 17-1549
Judge: Leval
Opinion Date: November 14, 2018

Under the circumstances of this case, copyright registration, without more, does not trigger accrual of an ownership claim under section 205(c) of the Copyright Act. The Second Circuit denied a petition for rehearing in a dispute over ownership of the renewal term copyrights of certain musical compositions and sound recordings. The court had previously vacated the district court’s grant of defendants’ motion to dismiss for untimeliness under section 205(c) and remanded for further proceedings. View “Wilson v.
