description of a visualization project.

Court found that as long as digital versions placed photographs and articles within the context of their original purposes then there was no infringement of copyright. The fact that articles and photographs appear in a new medium, CD-ROM (that includes keyword search abilities and other features), makes no difference to the case. Judge Kaplan found that, "media neutrality is a fundamental principle of the Copyright Act."
