Oct. 12, 2011) The U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California concluded that it did not have personal jurisdiction over the defendant in a copyright infringement case brought by several origami artists. The court explained that copying from the website alone was not enough to establish jurisdiction—defendant must have targeted, or competed with the plaintiffs in California. Accordingly, the court granted the defendant's motion to dismiss the claims based on lack of personal jurisdiction.
