A New Era for Copyright Protection: Supreme Court Ruling Shifts the Balance **Attorney Advertising**

The Supreme Court recently issued a landmark decision in a case involving a music producer and a Warner subsidiary, signaling a major win for creators. The Court ruled that there is no time limit for recovering monetary damages in copyright cases filed before the statute of limitations. This means copyright owners can sue for infringements that happened even before the lawsuit was filed, as long as the lawsuit itself is filed within the statute of limitations.

What Does This Mean for Creators?

This ruling is a game-changer. It empowers creators to seek compensation for copyright infringement that may have occurred years or even decades ago. In the past, the three-year statute of limitations from the discovery of the infringement for copyright infringement often prevented creators from seeking damages for older infringements.

Now, creators have a longer damages window to recover for infringement of their intellectual property and pursue rightful compensation. The Supreme Court’s decision is based on a provision of the Copyright Act that allows copyright owners to recover “all the profits that the infringer has earned from the infringement.” This means that creators can potentially recover significant damages, even for past infringements.
