Mavrix Photo, Inc. v. Brand Technologies, Inc., 09-56134

In an action alleging that defendant infringed plaintiff's copyright in certain candid photos of celebrities by posting such photos on its website, judgment of the district court granting defendant's Rule 12(b)(2) motion is reversed where although defendant is not subject to general personal jurisdiction in California, its contacts to California are sufficiently related to the dispute such that it is subject to specific personal jurisdiction.
