US Supreme court delivers ruling on Internet Copyright


The US Supreme Court has made a landmark decision dealing with copyright law and the internet.

Media companies must obtain permission from their freelancers before posting their work on the internet or including it in other electronic archives. Previously, where articles or images from printed media was republished onto the internet, freelancers were not paid nor was their permission sought. Media giants like Time Magazine and the New York Times argued that the version published on the internet were simply revisions of articles or images in print. Most freelance contracts now include clauses which provide for electronic use and many of the articles or image affected are likely to be those over 10 years old.
