Copyright Infringement

Created by bharath reddy konda on May 03, 2016 741

“To bring a copyright infringement claim, a plaintiff must assert ownership of a valid copyright, and the unauthorized copying of constituent elements of the work that are original to it.” Not every instance of copying of a protected work is copyright infringement; Only constituent elements of the work that are original are protected. When the allegedly infringed material is not original, there is no copyright infringement.
