Supreme Court rules in favor of plaintiff in copyright infringement case

×
On May 19, the US Supreme Court decided in favor of Paula Petrella in the copyright infringement case Petrella v Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, Inc., stating that laches "cannot be invoked as a bar to Petrella's pursuit of a claim for damages brought within...the three-year window." (Laches means that a legal right or claim will not be enforced if a long delay in asserting the right or claim has hurt the opposing party as a sort of "legal ambush.")
