Sixto NÚÑEZ, Plaintiff, Appellant, v. CARIBBEAN INTERNATIONAL NEWS CORP. (El Vocero De Puerto Rico), Defendant, Appellee.

United States Court of Appeals, First Circuit.

Decided December 21, 2000.

Attorney(s) appearing for the Case

José Guillermo González, with whom José Manuel Urrutia-Vélez, was on brief, for appellant.

Juan R. Marchand-Quintero, with whom Francisco Ortiz-Santini and Juan R. Marchand-Quintero Law Offices, were on brief, for appellee.

Before TORRUELLA, Chief Judge, LYNCH, Circuit Judge, and GARCIA-GREGORY, District Judge.

TORRUELLA, Chief Judge.

This appeal raises the question whether the reproduction of independently newsworthy photographs without permission is a "fair use" pursuant to 17 U.S.C. § 107 when those photographs were acquired and reproduced in good faith and the work had already been distributed on a limited basis.

Because we find that such use is fair, we affirm the district court's grant of summary judgment.
