Elizabeth Retersdorf authored an article, "Copyright Registration Ruling Creates Insurance Risks," for Law360. The article discusses the recent Supreme Court opinion in Fourth Estate Public Benefit Corp. v. Wallstreet.Com, LLC, 586 U.S. ___ 2019, in which the Court held that copyright holders must not only apply for copyright registration but also obtain it before bringing suit. Retersdorf discusses the implications the delay in bringing suit may have for policyholders and insurers with respect to the timing of a claim and questions of coverage. As Retersdorf concludes, "Fourth Estates serves as a good reminder to policyholders and insurers to take note of potential lawsuits and the consequences of not doing so."
