OWE’s Noel Cook helped write an amicus brief filed in the U.S. Supreme Court on September 4, 2018 on behalf of the International Trademark Association (INTA) in Fourth Estate Public Benefit Corporation v. Wall-Street.com (17-561).   At issue is whether a copyright infringement suit must wait until the copyright is successfully registered by the U.S. Copyright Office.  Noel, who is listed as one of three co-authors of the brief, is vice-chair of INTA’s Copyright Committee which worked closely with INTA’s Amicus Committee on the brief.  The brief is available here: Amicus Brief INTA Fourth Estate v Wall Street Atlanta

According to the brief, “INTA has a particular interest in this case because the question presented – whether a copyright owner may commence an infringement suit after delivering the proper deposit, application, and fee to the Copyright Office, but before the Register of Copyrights has acted on the application – concerns imposing additional burdens on INTA members and other intellectual property owners before they may enforce and protect their rights.”
