Global law firm White & Case LLP filed an amicus brief with the U.S. Supreme Court on behalf of the American Intellectual Property Law Association (AIPLA) in a closely watched case, Oracle v. Rimini Street.
AIPLA is a leading national bar association of intellectual property lawyers. In the brief, AIPLA asked the Supreme Court to reverse a Ninth Circuit decision and rule that certain cost awards are not available for copyright infringement. AIPLA argued that upholding the lower court's ruling undermines the incentives for copyright registration and would lead to greater uncertainty for copyright owners and parties that litigate copyright disputes.
The White & Case team that represented AIPLA includes partner Stefan Mentzer and associate Daniel Ledesma, based in the New York office.
