Online Publishing Expert in Copyright Protection

Case Description:

An online publishing expert in copyright protections was needed for a copyright infringement case. The plaintiff, who had granted the defendant one time print publication rights, claimed the defendant continued to incorporate his works in its online publishing beyond the initial printing and publishing. The plaintiff sought economic damages for access via defendant's online publishing not covered by its initial publication rights.

IMS ExpertServices was asked to locate a online publishing expert who was an authority on copyright protections and familiar with technical aspects of the content disaggregation that occurs when publishing online content from a print publication. An expert with experience working for a major newspaper or magazine involved in online publishing might be a good candidate. Familiarity with the Supreme Court's June 2001 decision in New York Times Co. v. Tasini was also considered helpful.
