Georgia et al. v. Public.Resource.Org, Inc.
As a general rule, the law is not subject to copyright. A judicially created exception, known as the “government edicts” doctrine, applies to certain works having a force of law, including those created by state governments. The (presently) copyrighted annotations to the Georgia statutes are prepared by LexisNexis Group, but the annotations, although used by the court, do not have the force of law.
