By April 5, 2021April 8th, 2021Legal

In a case that has significant implications on Fair Use jurisprudence that will affect all visual creators, the U.S. Supreme Court just released their opinion in Google LLC v. Oracle America, Inc.

I am reviewing this opinion now closely, but an early read indicates that the Court broadly construed Fair Use in this context of computer code and API’s. This will have wide-reaching effects, and more analysis will be forthcoming. Stay tuned to ASMP for the latest information.
