Can Georgia state law be copyrighted?
A legal research company, Fastcase, is trying to prove that it can’t.
The company filed a lawsuit in the U.S. District Court in Atlanta. The suit is against another research service, Casemaker, that has exclusive rights to Georgia's Rules and Regulations through an agreement with the state.
According to Massachusetts attorney Bob Ambrogi, the case could have an impact outside of Georgia, since many states have these kinds of agreements with publishers.
