Elvis Clarifies Copyright Crime (II)
Highest Court Supreme Court of the United States
Year Ended 1988
Plaintiffs Federal Prosecutor(s)
Defendants Bootlegger(s)/Counterfeiter(s)
Other Presley, Elvis
Short Description Defendant was convicted and sentenced for crimes connected with a scheme to manufacture and distribute bootleg Elvis Presley phonograph records. Defendant appealed his convictions for copyright infringement, interstate transportation of stolen property, and conspiracy, which the appellate court affirmed. The Supreme Court, however, reversed and remanded the case in light of its holding in Dowling v. U.S., 473 U.S. 207 (1985), where it held that a provision the National Stolen Property Act imposing criminal penalties for interstate transportation of stolen property did not reach the interstate transportation of "bootleg records". On remand, the appellate court reversed Defendant's interstate transportation conviction, but affirmed the remaining convictions. The Defendant then moved to reconsider his conviction, which was denied by the court of appeals. The court of appeals then remanded the case to the district court for re-sentencing. - SKR
