New Development in NGS Infringement Case
The story continues for Greenberg v. NGS. The U.S. Court of Appeals for the 11th Circuit will reconsider its decision to vacate a $400,000 award for Greenberg for copyright infringement by National Geographic Society. Greenberg requested that the court hear the matter “en banc,” where all of the judges of the 11th Circuit (instead of the original panel of 3 judges) weigh in on the ultimate decision, and the court agreed. This happens usually because the case concerns a matter of exceptional public importance or the panel’s decision appears to conflict with a prior decision of the court.
