Gaylord v. U.S., United States Court of Appeals, Federal Circuit, No. 2014-5020, 4 February 2015

The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit has held that $540,000 was a reasonable royalty for the United States to pay on infringing commemorative stamps that the U.S. Postal Service had sold to collectors (Gaylord v. U.S., February 4, 2015, Taranto, R.). The stamps were created to commemorate the service of Korean War veterans, but they infringed a sculptor’s copyrighted work (“The Column”) because they featured a photograph of the Korean War Veterans Memorial, which incorporated the protected work. The judgment of the Court of Federal Claims was affirmed.

A full summary of this case has been published on Kluwer IP Law.
