The article focuses on a 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals decision which held that copyright infringers may be able to discharge awards against them in bankruptcy under some circumstances. In this case, the defendants operated a business duplicating, distributing and selling Spanish language films and when New Form Inc. acquired exclusive rights to the films, the defendants continued to sell their remaining inventory. The court found that willful copyright infringement is not willful and malicious injury, and is not dischargeable under bankruptcy.
