Registration required

Last year I blogged about the Fourth Estate Public Benefit Corp. v. Wall-Street.com LLC case where the U.S. Supreme Court would decide whether to file a lawsuit an author needed either to have filed a copyright application or to have the copyright registration certificate.

It took less than two months for the Supreme Court to decide the case (see link). In a unanimous decision, the Supreme Court held that before a lawsuit over a U.S. work can be filed, the author must have the actual copyright registration certificate (with some limited exceptions).
