The doctrine of hot news was first established by the United States Supreme Court in 1918, before the current Copyright Act was adopted. The most immediate means of communication at that time was the wire, and the International News Service and the Associated Press competed to provide the best coverage of news events. At that time, the Associated Press and the International News Service independently employed journalists to cover and write news articles, which were then distributed to their affiliated newspapers across the country.
Although the NBA has a strong position that hot-news misappropriation claims aren’t equivalent to exclusive copyright rights, the Second Circuit has found that hot-news claims are not equivalent to exclusive copyright rights. Its opinion highlights the need for protection against “free-riding,” a legal theory of infringement that relies on the exploitation of a public resource. The NLRB has acknowledged these exceptions, but the scope of this legal doctrine remains unclear.

The court found in favor of Brokers on the misappropriation claim. The court found that Fly’s use of Brokers’ recommendations did not violate the NBA’s anti-free-riding policy. The court found that Fly had not misused the information obtained by Brokers in violation of the terms of the Hotnews test. The fact that Fly’s publication was so highly time-sensitive and costly did not disqualify the publication of the information.
