Rosenkranz: Congress Won't Change Copyright Laws Play

April 9 (Bloomberg) -- Joshua Rosenkranz, head of the Supreme Court and Appellate Litigation practice at Orrick, Herrington & Sutcliffe LLP, talks with Bloomberg Law's Spencer Mazyck about obtaining a landmark victory from the U.S. Supreme Court on behalf of his client, Supap Kirtsaeng, in one of the top business and consumer cases in the court's nine-month term, Kirtsaeng v. John Wiley & Sons. On March 19, 2013, the high court ruled that textbooks and other goods made abroad can be resold in the U.S. without violating American copyright law, bolstering the multibillion-dollar “gray market.” Rosenkranz, in this "Rainmakers" episode, also discusses the implications of the court's decision for copyright holders, publishers and manufacturers, which say their U.S. sales are being undercut.
