Abstract

This note examines the United States Supreme Court's decision which set forth the proper analysis for resolving copyright disputes involving the work for hire doctrine. The Court concluded a "literal interpretation" of the governing statute was appropriate. The author contends the literal interpretation, now to be applied by all courts deciding work for hire issues, provides a uniform standard as well as predictability--two paramount objectives of copyright law.
