Request for Amici: Tell SCOTUS to Incentivize Original Fictional Characters through Copyright

August 03, 2020

Robins Kaplan LLP petitioned for certiorari with the U.S. Supreme Court on behalf of the Moodsters Company. Moodsters Co. asks the Court to review the Ninth Circuit’s decision that dismissed its 89-page amended complaint and found the Moodsters characters uncopyrightable as a matter of law. The Supreme Court has never before addressed character copyrights.
