Motion Granted

The District Court has granted plaintiffs' Motion to File First Amended Complaint in Golan v. Ashcroft. The Amended Complaint pleads a new theory for the Copyright Term Extension Act being unconstitutional- that the new term is effectively perpetual and therefore violates "limited times." The Amended Complaint also still challenges the restoration of copyrights to numerous foreign works that had been in the public domain prior to the enactment of the Uruguay Round Agreements Act.
The Government has stated its intention to respond by filing a new Motion to Dismiss.
