ASTM ET AL., AERA ET AL. V. PUBLIC.RESOURCE.ORG | Appeal No. 17-7035 (Consolidated with 17-7039) | D.C. Cir. | September 25, 2017 | The Cyberlaw Clinic and local counsel Catherine Gellis filed an amicus brief on behalf of members of Congress Zoe Lofgren(D-CA 19th District) and Darrell Issa (R-CA 49th District) in the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit. The brief supports defendant-appellant Public.Resource.org (Public Resource) in the case American Society of Testing Engineers (ASTM) et. al. v. Public.Resource.org, Case No. 17-7035 (D.C. Cir.). The appeal — a consolidation of two district court cases, both filed by standard developing organizations (SDOs) — addresses the copyrightability of the law and standards incorporated therein. The crux of the case is whether the text of applicable law may be shared freely by non-profit organizations like Public Resource.

Great to hear that SCOTUS has granted cert in the Oracle/Google case, re: copyright and APIs. The @cyberlawclinic submitted an amicus brief earlier this year on behalf of IP scholars supporting the petition for certiorari, focused on fair use issues. clinic.cyber.harvard.edu/2019…
