Supreme Court Rules Damages for Copyright Infringement Can be Recovered for More than Three Years in Timely Filed Suit; But the Dissenters See a Different Future.

On May 9, the Supreme Court resolved an important question about whether the three-year statute of limitations under the Copyright Act also limits monetary damages to a period of three years before filing suit. In a 6-3 decision authored by Justice Elena Kagan, the Court held in Warner Chappell Music, Inc. v. Nealy, that a copyright owner can obtain monetary damages for any timely infringement claim, no matter when the infringement occurred.
