Intra-Cellular Therapies, Inc. v. Iancu
Sipco, LLC v. Emerson Electric Co.

Parker v. Winwood

Plaintiffs Willia Dean Parker and Rose Banks sued defendants Mervyn Winwood, Steve Winwood, and Kobalt Music Publishing for copyright infringement. The district court found that plaintiffs failed to submit admissible evidence showing that Steve copied plaintiffs’ protected work—one element of an infringement claim—so it granted judgment in his and Kobalt’s favor. The court also found that it lacked personal jurisdiction over Mervyn, who resides in the United Kingdom, and therefore dismissed him from the case. Plaintiffs contest both rulings. We affirm.
