1 min

Meaghan Kent, Claire Wheeler, and Kristin Adams were featured in the May 2018 issue of The Reporter. Their article considers the implications of the ruling of the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals Rentmeester v Nike Inc No. 15-35509 (9th Cir. 2018) and discusses the broader implications for copyright owners following the District Court's dismissal of an action brought by a photographer against Nike. The dismissal was on grounds that Nike infringed the photographer’s copyright in a photograph of Michael Jordan when it commissioned its own photograph of Jordan and then used that photo to create its "Jumpman" logo.
