What Does Closure Look Like?

This week we examine the conclusion of three previously reported cases.

This week's post provides updates to previously reported cases.

On June 24, 2020, we reported on a lawsuit in which True Nature Education, an educational travel company, was accused of using a photo (see page six for alleged infringed photo) without the permission of the original photographer . On December 3, 2020, both parties notified the courts that a settlement had been reached, thus ending the lawsuit. Details of the settlement have not been made public.

In our July 13, 2020, post, we wrote about a lawsuit filed between music publisher, Yesh Music ("Yesh") and Tufts University ("Tufts"). In its complaint, Yesh accused Tufts of using its song “Anything You Synthesize,” in one of Tuft's now-removed YouTube video. As an update, both parties stipulated to end the lawsuit and on October 1, 2020, a Notice of Voluntary Dismissal was filed.

Our last update comes from our November 23, 2020, post in which we posted about a legal battle between two nursing education rivals in Kentucky. Health Education Center alleged that A Servant Heart Training Institution used and published "a significant portion of copyrighted material from the website of Plaintiff.” Both parties filed a stipulation to dismiss, and on March 4, 2021, the courts issued an Order Of Dismissal without Prejudice. Like our other cases, details on the agreement are not publicly known.
