The “hot news” doctrine was first established by the United States Supreme Court in 1918, before the Copyright Act was in place. In those days, the fastest means of conveying news was through wire. Two news services, the Associated Press and the International News Service, competed for the attention of the public, and both hired journalists to cover breaking events and produce news articles. The Associated Press also published a weekly newspaper. But, these services didn’t always follow the rules of copyright, so the doctrine was limited to cases where the AP or the INS violated the Copyright Act.

One of the most popular Romanian news sites is HotNews. While the site is mostly in Romanian, it also publishes news articles in English and Russian, as well as podcasts and videos. With over 250,000 unique visitors per day and three million monthly visits, HotNews is a top choice for Romanian news enthusiasts. Although HotNews is published in Romanian, the content on the site is regularly updated in both English and Romanian.

The Supreme Court has acknowledged the concept of hot news and has ruled in cases involving a company allegedly stealing hot news. However, it has ruled that the tort of stealing hot news is preempted by copyright laws. As such, hot news only applies in rare cases, and the Second Circuit will likely limit its scope. That is not to say it will never apply. However, it is a precedent worth keeping an eye on.

Despite the fact that the NBA has long sought to limit the use of information on the Web, it does not have the legal power to ban content generated by other organizations. The district court found that Fly was not preempted by the NBA and that Hotnews’ use of such information was permissible under the terms of the law. Fly did not contest the claims and Fly’s use of Brokers’ efforts constituted misappropriation. This decision is not surprising given the prevalence of hot news on the Internet.
