Copyright & Public Domain Update: Conan Doyle Cert. Petition re "Sherlock Holmes" Scheduled for Court's October 31, 2014 Conference

The Court normally issues an order deciding whether to grant cert. on the Monday following its Friday conference.

Respondent Klinger -- who won the case in the 7th Circuit -- waived the right to respond to the petition, giving it a figurative back of the hand.  The Court usually asks for a response before granting cert. where there has been a waiver.

Stay tuned.
