“The law is not copyrightable. … Someone needs to stand up for the proposition that public law is in the public domain.” — Ed Walters, Fastcase CEO, Feb. 2016
Fastcase’s lawsuit against Casemaker can proceed ruled the 11th Circuit. [text] The lawsuit, now over two years old, started when Fastcase received a take-down notice for publishing the Georgia Administrative Rules and Regulations. Casemaker claimed they had exclusive rights to distribute, for commercial use, the Georgia Administrative Rules and Regulations. For an analysis of yesterday’s ruling, see Bob Ambrogi’s LawSites post.
