Copyright Lawsuit Results in $19 Mln Damages Judgment

As a follow-up to my August 14 posting, Publisher Sues Financial Services Firm for Copyright Violation, this news from Reuters, Legg Mason told to pay $20 mln in copyright suit.

  • “Lowry’s, which is based in North Palm Beach, Florida, said it brought the lawsuit because Legg Mason permitted wide distribution (via the company’s intranet) of its Lowry’s Market Trend Analysis newsletter, even though payment was made for only a single copy.” (Lowry’s Reports v. Legg Mason)
