Supreme Court Grants Certiorari on Copyright Issue

The Supreme Court this morning granted certiorari on a circuit split involving the Eleventh Circuit.  The Eleventh Circuit (along with the Eighth) has previously held that the fee provisions of the Copyright Act, which allow recovery of the “full costs” of attendance, do not displace general statutes that limit awards to taxable costs.  Artisan Contractors Ass’n of America, Inc. v. Frontier Insurance Co., 275 F.3d 1038 (11th Cir. 2001) (per curiam).  The grant of certiorari will resolve a split with the Ninth Circuit, which held the opposite.  The case is Rimini Street, Inc. v. Oracle USA, Inc., No. 17-1625.
