Here, John Tehranian argues a copyright and trade secret appeal involving our client’s design work that led to a video game drive; the case had been dismissed by the trial court, but John got that reversed and the case sent back to trial. The issues involved the amount of creativity required for art or utilitarian works to be deemed original under US copyright law. The Ninth Circuit agreed with our case and in a published opinion reversed the trial court, opening the way for our client to have his day in court before a jury.
