Kwan v. Schlein, 09-5202

Grant of summary judgment to defendants on a claim for copyright infringement, on the ground that the claim was time-barred, is affirmed, as a time-barred ownership claim will bar a claim for copyright infringement where, as here, the infringement claim cannot be decided without adjudication of a genuine dispute as to the plaintiff's ownership of the copyright.
