Two More Copyright Lawsuits Settle

Back in June and July of 2010 we reported on the lawsuits brought by the photographer Anne Pearse-Hocker against the National Museum of the American Indian, for making copies of her copyrighted photographs, and against Firelight Media, which used the photographs in its documentary film about Wounded Knee.

Our good friend, Peter Hirtle, has been keeping track of these two lawsuits, and he just informed us that both cases have settled. He’s written a brief but informative post on what we can learn from these two lawsuits (and settlements). Thanks Peter!
