Court Dismisses "Copyright Champion's" Source Code Copyright Suit
May/June 2006 (vol. 26 no. 3)
pp. 88-90
Greg Aharonian, an IEEE intellectual property activist, describes himself as a "champion [of] the American public's interests" in the patent and copyright systems. In carrying out this self-assigned role, he sued US Attorney General Alberto Gonzales in US district court in San Francisco for a declaratory judgment. Aharonian wanted the court to declare that copyright law cannot legally be applied to protect computer source code. The court disagreed and dismissed his case (Aharonian v. Gonzales, N.D. Cal., No. C04-5190, Order of Jan. 3, 2006).
