This Just In: SDNY Affirms Hot New Doctrine in AP Case


Spot the irony in AP’s own report of the decision regarding a decision allowing its ‘hot news’ doctrine action to proceed:

A federal judge has reaffirmed that a 1918 legal doctrine applies in the Internet age by allowing The Associated Press to proceed with a copyright-infringement lawsuit against a company accused of redistributing the news organization’s stories.

Hint: ‘hot news’ doctrine is not a copyright doctrine.
