Law Blog Content: Who's the Owner?

Kevin O'Keefe offers insightful analysis on the question, "who owns your law blog content" in response to the U.S. Supreme Court's decision on Tuesday to reinstate a class action settlement filed by freelance writers who allege that online databases and print publishers violated copyright law by reproducing the writers' content on electronic databases without permission.

O'Keefe points out the Supreme Court's decision "highlights the murky waters we're going to navigate on this issue [of blog content ownership and copyright law] as more and more publishers re-purpose your blog content, with and without your permission as the blogger."
