On March 4, 2019, the Supreme Court decided two separate cases which will change how copyright infringement lawsuits will be litigated going forward. The first case, Fourth Estate Public Benefit Corp. v. Wall-Street.com, LLC, et al., answered the question of when a claimant may bring a suit for copyright infringement, while Rimini Street, Inc., et al. v. Oracle USA, Inc., et al. determined the extent of costs that may be awarded against a losing party.
