3d Cir: Copyright Act permits prejudgment interest in disgorgement of profits cases

Prejudgment interest is normally associated with making an injured party whole by providing interest on monetary awards for past damages. In William A. Graham Co. v. Haughey, No. 10-2762 (3d Cir. May 16, 2011), the Third Circuit permitted prejudgment interest to be added to an award of the infringer's profits as well, even where no damages were sought. The Court noted that: (1) nothing in the Copyright Act prohibits prejudgment interest on a disgorgement award; and (2) prejudgment interest and disgorgement serve the same interests (making the claimant whole and preventing unjust enrichment).
