    Mikaela Berst

    On September 27, 2018, the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) granted a petition for writ of certiorari filed by Rimini Street to hear its copyright infringement dispute with Oracle International Corporation.

    The U.S. Supreme Court will determine whether the Copyright Act’s provision that allows a prevailing party to recover full costs includes non-taxable costs in addition to taxable costs.
