Mr. Buus Obtains Dismissal for Client Thumb

Mr. Buus successfully defended a client sued in federal court for copyright infringement. He argued that the subject "work," consisting of a compilation of factual data, was not protectable under the Copyright laws. Based upon that, he obtained a quick dismissal of the case. "Not everything that someone creates is entitled to Copyright protection," Mr. Buus said. "There are limits. It is well-settled law that a "work" must contain a least a minimal amount of creativity or originality. A simple listing or compilation of data, without more, is not copyrightable."
