Case: Copyrights/Registration (N.D. Tex.)

Sept. 17, 2020, 4:22 PM

Ackerman McQueen Inc.'s partial motion to dismiss, in the Nat’l Rifle Ass’n of Am.'s action against Ackerman for copyright infringement, was granted by a federal district court in Texas. The court noted that since the NRA concedes that it had not registered copyrights in any of the copyrightable material relevant to this lawsuit before filing suit, in accordance with 17 U.S.C. § 411(a), its copyright claim must be dismissed without leave to amend.
