Baisden v. I’m Ready Productions, Inc.

Petition for certiorari denied on March 18, 2013
Docket No. Op. Below Argument Opinion Vote Author Term
12-803 5th Cir. N/A N/A N/A N/A OT 2012

Issue: Whether 17 U.S.C. § 204(a)’s requirement that all transfers of copyright ownership, including exclusive licenses, be in writing can be evaded by the simple expedient of treating alleged oral exclusive licenses as implied nonexclusive licenses based on the “totality of the parties’ conduct.”
