Limitations Period

Claim for copyright infringement accrues, for statute of limitations purposes, at time of infringement, rather than a time plaintiff knows or has reason to know of injury upon which claim is based, since legislative history of 17 U.S.C. § 507(b) makes clear that Congress intended to adopt uniform limitations period running from date of infringement, not from date of discovery.  (Auscape International v. National Geographic Society, 71 USPQ2d 1874, DC SNY 8/12/04).
