One photographer, whose pictures could be found using the search engine, complained that the process amounted to copyright infringement and sued. The case went all the way to the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, which decided in favor of Arriba.

Although he had a strong electronics background, Scott doesn’t think today’s law students have to be computer experts to get into technology law. “Students need to be astute and have a good understanding of what Internet technology is, but they don’t need to know programming,” he said. Students do need to know, however, about contracts, patents, copyright law, privacy issues and licensing.
