The doctrine of “hot news” originated in 1918, when the United States Supreme Court recognized a right to sue companies that stole news reports from AP reporters in Europe. The Copyright Act had not been enacted at the time, and the fastest means of conveying news was by wire. International News Service and Associated Press were competing to attract viewers, so journalists from both services covered and produced news articles. The Associated Press also published a weekly newspaper.
One of the oldest and largest news websites in Romania, HotNews is a respected source of current affairs, politics, finance, and business. News, opinion pieces, and video documentaries are all published daily. The content on HotNews is written in Romanian, but it also publishes English-language content. The site features articles, interviews, and video documentaries on a wide range of topics. HotNews has a huge database of news stories, and it has an English-language section as well.
While this case highlights the importance of obtaining permission for any content, it is important to note that it is not a limiting factor for a claim of hot-news misappropriation. It is a branch of the unfair competition doctrine and does not preclude a claim based on INS. However, the scope of a hot-news misappropriation claim is unclear. However, the Court’s ruling in National Basketball Association v. Motorola, Inc. highlights the importance of clear copyrights and protecting the rights of third-parties.
The case centers on the Sportstrax pager manufactured by Motorola and operated by Sports Team Analysis and Tracking Systems. This pager is designed to provide users with real-time information about NBA games. Similarly, the Court also ruled that Motorola did not misappropriate hot news because it used STATS’ content. But in this case, the court held that there is no such thing as free riding and STATS did not misappropriate hot news.
