WHAT DOES IT TAKE TO FILE A COPYRIGHT CASE?

In others, they had to wait until a registration issued or action was taken on the application. Finally, the Supreme Court will resolve this looming issue as it agreed to hear the issue in the case of Fourth Estate Public Benefit Corp. v. Wall-Street.com LLC.
