Bryant v. Gordon, __ F. Supp.2d __, 2007 WL 461326 (N.D. Ill. Feb. 8, 2007) (Kennelly, J).

This opinion replaces Judge Kennelly’s February 8, 2007 opinion.  The result is not altered, the Court granted summary judgment for defendants, Gordon and Mach 1 LLC ("Mach 1"), on plaintiff’s, Bryant, claims of copyright infringement based upon copyrighted goods Mach 1 purchased free of encumbrances in a bankruptcy auction.  The only substantive change appears to be a statement that to the extent that Mach 1 acquired merchandise from the asset sale, Mach 1 was likely entitled to to depict that merchandise for advertising purposes, including on the internet.  But the Court stops short of holding that the goods depicted on Mach 1’s internet site were all acquired from the asset sale.
