FORT LAUDERDALE – An independent news organization is suing a website and its Broward County owner for allegedly distributing its content after a license had expired.

Fourth Estate Public Market Corp. filed a complaint on March 11 in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida, Fort Lauderdale against Wall-Street.com LLC and Jerrold D. Burden, citing alleged copyright infringement.

According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges the defendants obtained a license from AHN Feed Syndicate to distribute works owned by the plaintiff. The plaintiff holds Wall-Street.com LLC and Burden responsible because the defendants allegedly failed to comply with the provisions of the terms of use and continued to copy and distribute plaintiff's copyrighted works even after the defendant's license expired.

The plaintiff seeks the following: a preliminary and permanent injunction enjoining defendants from committing the same acts; compensation for actual damages and defendants’ profits gained from the infringement; attorneys’ fees and costs; and any further relief that the court may deem just and proper. It is represented by Joel B. Rothman, Jerold I. Schneider and Diana F. Maderos of Schneider Rothman Intellectual Property Law Group PLLC in Boca Raton.
