Is Federal Government an Owner or an Infringer of Copyright in War Memorial?
Response or Comment
In Gaylord v. U.S., the Federal Circuit addressed the right of the federal government to issue postage stamps depicting copyrighted sculptures that were part of a federally-funded war memorial. In addition, the court addressed, in a matter of first impression for the Federal Circuit, the concept of a "joint work" in federal copyright law. Mary LaFrance discusses this interesting and novel issue.
