Summary Judgment in Copyright Infringement Lawsuit

Obtained summary judgment in a copyright infringement lawsuit brought by a client’s former vendor in the Western District of Missouri. The plaintiffs claimed an online system developed by one of the client’s vendors infringed its copyrights and sought damages potentially in the hundreds of millions of dollars from the client and other users of the platform. After two and a half years of litigation, the district court granted the defendants' motion for summary judgment, holding that the defendants had not copied any protectable elements of the plaintiffs' platform and thus did not infringe the plaintiffs' copyrights.
