Ninth Circuit Issues Decision in Hunley v. Instagram

The Ninth Circuit issued a decision in the case of Hunley v. Instagram. The court ruled in favor of Instagram, stating that Instagram cannot be held liable for secondary infringement based on its embedding feature. The court upheld copyright principles that allow authors and creators to link to and embed third-party content. The decision maintains a vibrant internet where sharing and engagement with knowledge and creative expression are possible. The court also affirmed the applicability of the Perfect 10 test, which determines that a website does not infringe when it does not store a copy of the relevant work on its server. Instagram was found not liable for infringement in this case.
