Bouchat v. Balitmore Ravens – 4th Circuit on Copyright Damages


Plaintiff established that the NFL and the Baltimore Ravens had infirnged his copyright in a drawing for the Balitmore Ravens logo.  He claimed damages based on a variety of sources of revenue to the team, including merchandise sales and broadcast income.  The Fourth Circuit holds that there must be a conceivable connection between the infringement and the revenue, and a more than speculative causal link.
