New Matter SPRING 2021, Volume 46, Number 1

Ninth Circuit Report

Anne-Marie Dao

Troutman Sanders LLP

It is Spring once again—and with this Spring comes the hope of an end to the pandemic! I hope everyone has been staying safe. While I had hoped to give an update on Google v. Oracle, it seems that the oral argument, which was to occur March 24, 2020 was delayed until October 7, 2020. So, we still await the Supreme Court’s opinion on (1) whether copyright protection extends to a software interface; and (2) whether, as the jury found, the petitioner’s use of a software interface in the context of creating a new computer program constitutes fair use.

Today’s Ninth Circuit Report will instead discuss a CCPA data breach lawsuit: Rahman v. Marriott International, Inc.1
