A hotnews is breaking news that’s of broad interest and may even constitute copyright infringement if it’s published without the original author’s permission. For example, a helicopter crash in New York City may be breaking news if the news is not published within 24 hours of its happening. News coverage of such an incident, however, is not allowed unless it’s licensed by the original author. Fortunately, the four passengers escaped the crash.

Although the concept of hot news has been around for a few years, it has only recently gained legitimacy in the United States. A case involving NBA v. Motorola involved a company that claimed to have copied hot news from another website. However, the Second Circuit found that copyright law preempts the plaintiff’s claims and therefore hot news remains a viable alternative to copyright. While these cases are rare, the concept of hot news may well become the legal remedy of choice for some content-based violations.
