State Supreme Court Proceedings Edit

The Ohio Supreme Court upheld the reversal of a conviction under state law (Ohio Rev. C. §2913.04(A)) for unauthorized use of property, arising out of a BBS operator's unauthorized copying of computer software. The Court held that the state criminal charges of unauthorized use that are based solely upon the unauthorized uploading, downloading, and posting of computer software on a computer bulletin board is preempted by federal copyright laws.
