The Hot News Doctrine aims to protect the economic value of news by ensuring that a published work has clear authorship and an economic value that doesn’t diminish over short periods of time. Hot news is typically written or televised material that has a short shelf life, is difficult to analyze, and is deemed important only when it is immediately relevant to the topic at hand. However, it’s not always possible to define what constitutes “hot news” in a way that can protect the intellectual property rights of any given author.
The “hot-news” doctrine was first formulated by the United States Supreme Court in 1918. In that time, the Copyright Act was not in place, and the most effective means of communication were the wire. At the time, the Associated Press and the International News Service competed for customers and sourced news articles from independent journalists. They then supplied them to their affiliated newspapers across the country. While the Associated Press and the International News Service were competing in the field of news, each used its own network of journalists to cover events and generate news articles.
In the Second Circuit case of National Basketball Association v. Motorola, Inc., the court ruled that a “hot-news” misappropriation claim based on the INS does not constitute exclusive copyright rights. However, it does provide protection against “free-riding,” which is a key principle in the courts. The Court’s ruling further clarifies how these courts view “hot-news” misappropriation claims. This case has implications for all kinds of claims against the NBA, including the one brought by Pacquiao.
