Study each of the following cases carefully. Briefly state the principle of law and your decision.
Application of Copyright Law to Computers Six freelance writers sold articles for publication in print to a variety of popular newspapers and magazines, including The New York Times, Newsday , and Sports Illustrated. Nexis allowed computer users to retrieve the online version of these articles, which also were placed electronically onto CD-ROMs. The six freelance writers filed a lawsuit, arguing that, while they had granted permission to have their work appear in print form, they had never granted permission to have their work appear in electronic form. Are the plaintiffs likely to succeed in this lawsuit? [ Tasini v. New York Times Co., et alia, 972 F. Supp. 804 (New York)]
