Big Boy Vs Little Man

BADM215WRITING ASSIGNMENT 01Your assignment is to IRAC the following fact pattern. Copyright Infringement.  Big Boy Enterprises, Ltd., develops and markets video enter¬tainment systems, including the “Freedom” console and video game cartridges.  Little Man, Inc., is an independent developer, manufacturer, and marketer of computer entertain¬ment software, including game cartridges that are compatible with Freedom and other computer systems.  Big Boy licenses its copyrighted computer code and its trademark to de¬velopers of Freedom-compatible games in competition with Big Boy.  Little Man chose not to purchase a license from Big Boy, however, but to reverse engineer Big Boy’s games to discover the requirements of the code that would make Little Man’s games compatible with Freedom.  As part of the reverse engineering, Little Man transformed the machine-read¬able object code contained in Big Boy’s game cartridges into human-readable source code us¬ing a process called “disassembly.”  At the end of the process, Little Man created a manual that incorporated the information it had discovered about the requirements for a Freedom-compatible game.  The manual did not include any of Big Boy’s code.  With the manual, Little Man created a new computer code; with this code, Little Man developed Freedom-com¬patible games.  Big Boy sued Little Man, claiming, among other things, that Little Man’s dis¬assembly of its computer program constituted copyright infringement.  Little Man con¬tended that its disassembly of the code was a fair use.  How should the court rule?  Use the IRAC format to dis¬cuss fully. You will need to read the IRAC INSTRUCTIONS and review the IRAC SAMPLE, which are located within the folder IRAC INFORMATION in the Course Documents, before you begin to IRAC the given question.  What you will turn in is the full text of the question (FACTS), followed by each element of the IRAC format (Issue, Rule, Application, Conclusion).  See the basic example on the next page for the correct format.
