Plagiarism Today Explores the Latest Decision of the Copyright Claims Board

Jonathan Bailey writes the following in “Disney, Books and the Copyright Claims Board” for Plagiarism Today:

[On May 13], the Copyright Claims Board (CCB) handed down a final determination in its longest-running case: Morly Investments Pty Ltd v. The Walt Disney Company, et al. …

The case pits an Australian author, Rebecca Lim, and her publisher, Morly Investments Pty Ltd (Imprint: The High Street Publishing Company), against one of the largest media corporations in the world, Disney. It features a dispute over a book publishing contract and allegations that Disney continued authorizing sales of Lim’s book after the agreement ended.

The case is an outlier for the CCB in several ways. It involves the active participation of a large corporation, addresses three separate types of copyright infringement, and deals with statute of limitations issues.
