Copyright’s “Hot News” Doctrine

As reported in a recent Federalist Society publication, “Hot News: The “Hot-News” Doctrine Is Hot Again! Or Is It?,”

David L. Applegate and Ryan Schermerhorn discuss the status of the “hot-news” doctrine, a narrow exemption that may allow newspapers, websites, and blogs to prevent someone else from reporting the facts depicted in a story and that may still exist in the Second Circuit.

Yet another weird “property right,” courtesy IP law.
