Univ of Utah v. Max-Planck-Gesellschaft Zur Forderung der Wissenschaften E.V.
Cooper v. NCS Pearson, Inc.

Unclaimed Property Recovery Service, Inc. v. Kaplan

Appeal from a September 21, 2012, judgment of the United States District Court for the Eastern District of New York (Amon, C.J.), which dismissed this copyright case for failure to state a claim upon which relief may be granted. We hold that where the holder of a copyright in a litigation document has authorized a party to the litigation to use the document in the litigation, this constitutes an irrevocable authorization to all parties to the litigation (and to their attorneys, as well as the court) to use the documents thereafter in the litigation throughout its duration. Accordingly, for the reasons stated below, the district court’s dismissal of the action is AFFIRMED.
